S.A. University
To Get Millions

Buenos Aires (JTA) — The
University of Sao Paulo, in
Brazil, has been named to
inherit some $10 million
from the Nazi organization
Odessa, according to a report
a in the Brazilian newspaper
Folha de Sao Paulo.
It is believed that the in-
heritance consists of a
treasure of some 465 lbs. of
jewels, rare coins, gold and
precious stones, kept for
more than 40 years in a
vault of the Banco do Brasil
in the care of Albert Willi
Louis Blume, a Nazi Ger-
man who died heirless in
December 1983.
Mr. Blume died reportedly
in poverty, and today his
tomb is unkempt. It appears
that he waited faithfully for
the valuables to be claimed
- - -•a by Odessa, but that never
happened.
"He lived in misery and
was buried as an indigent,
' but everything leads one to
believe that he was a trusted
receiver of Odessa's goods,"
said Ben Abraham, a writer
and historian who in-
vestigated the Nazis who
lived in Brazil.
"Odessa gave refuge to
Nazis such as Blume, Josef
-/Mengele and Franz Warner.
And the valuables helped
the Nazis to corrupt officials
and buy false IDs," he said.
According to Brazilian
law, fortunes without heirs
are meant to go to public in-
° stitutions. In this case, the
recipient is the University of
Sao Paulo.
There has been no public
mention of the fact that the
valuables were stolen from
Nazi victims in Europe.

NY To Lose
Jewish Rep

New York (JTA) — New
York will lose at least one
Jewish congressman this
year under a redistricting
plan that pits two veteran
Jewish Democrats, Gary
Ackerman and James
Scheuer, against each other.
Another Jewish Democrat,
Stephen Solarz, has chosen
to run in a newly created
Hispanic district, rather
than face another incum-
;=) bent. His current district,
which includes the most
heavily Jewish neighbor-
hoods of Brooklyn, has been
divided up among districts.
The new districts reflect
the 1990 census results,
which shrinks the New York
state congssional delega-
tion from its present 34 seats
to 31.
