more pleasure than work.
"But after eight hours of
this, I don't need any exer-
cise," one said.
Across the room, another
man washes the dishes.
This is the process for the
standards — light and dark
pumpernickel, challah and
French, white and whole
wheat breads. The
specialties, like onion rolls
and hot dog buns or special
cakes, will come later.
- "If somebody wants it,
we'll try to make it," said
Robert Rogers, who has
worked four years at the
bakery.
One of the specialties,
Hungarian challah, was Ben
Goldner's idea. It's lower in
calories and has less eggs
and sugar, he said.
Goldner, who was born in
Hungary, started working
during World War II when
he was 15. He's been work-
ing at Zeman's for 16 years.
Goldner said the bread-
making process has remain-
ed virtually unchanged.
Same equipment. Same in-
gredients. Only the ovens
are different. Today's more
modern facilities have
revolving trays to cook the
maximum number of loaves
at the same time. And then
there's oat bread. Nobody
knew about it 10 years ago.

sraeli author S.Y. Agnon
said he writes "things
simply as they are." His
story "A Whole Loaf' tells of
a man whose family is
abroad. Left to care for
himself, he is very hungry
but hates his own cooking.
He procrastinates and is
constantly interrupted
before he finally decides to
eat.
He enters a restaurant,
where he tells the waiter to
bring him anything on the
menu. "And in order that he
should not think me the kind
of boor who eats anything
without selecting it, I added
to him gravely, 'But I want a
whole loaf."'
The protagonist watches
patiently as all the
customers are served. No
food is brought to his table.
Finally, the man leaves.
He returns to his empty
home. No one is there to
prepare even a slice of bread
for him, and he feels his
loneliness like a heavy
burden. ❑

Now it's all the rage, he said.
Despite his many years in
the same business, Goldner
said he continues to enjoy
his work. "You cannot get
bored in this bakery, that's
for sure."

Amsterdam (JTA) — Two
Dutch historians have
published a book charging
that the family of Swedish
diplomat Raoul Wallenberg
collaborated with Nazi Ger-
many during World War II,
including the purchase of
assets seized from Jews.
According to the authors,
Gerard Aalders and Cees
Wiebes, Wallenberg's arrest
and subsequent disap-
pearance may have been an
act of revenge by the Rus-
sians for his family's exten-
sive economic relations with
the Nazi regime.
Their theory was the sub-
ject of television broadcasts
in Holland and Sweden last
week to mark • the publica-
tion in both countries of
Business At Any Price
The Wallenbergs.
The book, the culmination
of 10 years of research,
discusses the transactions of
the Enskilda Bank owned by
Raoul's distant relatives,
Jacob and Marcus
Wallenberg, two brothers.

The bank allegedly made
large scale purchases of
debentures and shares in
certain American enter-
prises, which Jews in
Holland and elsewhere in
Nazi-occupied Europe had
been forced to hand over.
The bank knew full well
that this was stolen proper-
ty, the authors charge.
To cover themselves, the
bankers asked for a bona
fide declaration that the
assets were owned by the
seller before May 10, 1940,
the date of the German inva-
sion of Holland.
The Enskilda Bank helped
the Nazis in other ways, the
authors claim, by assuming
pseudo-ownership of foreign
subsidiaries of I.G. Farben
and Bosch, which were vital
to the German war effort, to
prevent their confiscation by
the Allies.
They charge that the
Swedish bank also financed
Nazi research for an atomic
bomb.
