The

That Isn't
Unique.

lb my knowledge, Felix
Bloch kept his distance from
the Kultusgemeinde and its
members.
While bigots and anti-
Semites may seek to exploit
his "Jewishness," Felix Bloch
was in fact an archetypical
assimilated Austrian-born
Jew.
At an early age, he was con-
verted to the Presbyterian
church, hoping to escape from
the perils of anti-Semitism
from which his Ether's fami-
ly had suffered.
He intermarried, and his
children are not known to be
raised as Jews. His daughter,
Andrea, however, claims that
despite his conversion, her
father "felt an intense con-
nection to the Jewish faith."
In sum, I know nothing
about the validity of the
charges and rumors about his
being a Soviet spy, but I do
know it will be a very bad rap
if anyone seeks to make any
connection between his
Jewish background and his
alleged betrayal of his
country.

Waldheim' Aid
Laid to Bloch

New York (JTA) — Felix
Bloch, who allegedly provid-
ed sensitive information to
the Soviets while working as
a State Department official,
lobbied to keep Austrian
President Kurt Waldheim's
name off the U.S. watch list of
undesirable aliens, according
to published reports.
A Vienna native whose
Jewish family fled the Nazis
there in 1938, Bloch is said to
have operated in Vienna as a
Soviet spy working within the
U.S. Embassy.
He is a longtime friend of
Austrian Foreign Minister
Alois Mock, a political col-
league of Waldheim, whose
wartime past in the German
Wehrmacht was revealed dur-
ing his campaign for Austrian
president.
The two men, who knew
each other from college days
in Bologna, Italy, discussed
the Waldheim matter at great
length.
Mock fought the U.S. deci-
sion to place Waldheim on the
list of people who may not
enter the United States
because of charges they
persecuted people for racial
reasons.
Mock recently made a fresh
attempt to remove
Waldheim's name from the
watch list.
No formal charges have
been filed against Bloch,
although U.S. government
authorities are continuing to
investigate the espionage
charges.
