Our search located additional references, in files relating to other individuals, or matters, which may or may not be about your subject(s). Our experience has shown, when ident, references usually contain information similar to the information processed in the main file(s). Because of our significant backlog, we have given priority to processing only the main investigative file(s).

If you want the references, you must submit a separate request for them in writing, and they will be reviewed at a later date, as time and resources permit. H See additional information which follows. The enclosed documents contained in Section 1 of files 89A-SE-74449, 56D-SF-169,194-HQ-3534, 9A-WF-4597, 89A-WF-200199, 194C-SF-140, 56-HQ-5644, 100-SE-19399, 58C-NY-279452, and 58C-NY-279452 sub files 302, BC, and GJ represent the first interim release of information responsive to you Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Some of the responsive material has been exempted from disclosure and marked "OTHER-Court Order" pursuant to the following protective court order: United States District Court, Southern District of New York, National Lawyers Guild v. Attorney General, 77, CIV-999. A search of the FBI Headquarters electronic surveillance indices has been conducted, and no responsive record which indicates that Thomas Lantos has ever been the target of electronic surveillance was located. Pursuant to Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations, Sections 16.11 and 16.49, there is a fee often cents per page for duplication. No fees are assessed for the first 100 pages. Upon receipt of these documents please make a check or money order payable to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the amount of $31.50 for 415 pages. Please remit payment to the Work Process Unit, Record Information/Dissemination Section, Records Management Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation, 170 Marcel Drive, Winchester, VA 22602.

horizontal spacing of twelve characters to the inch. This style of type may be found on numerous foreign and domestic brand name typewriters. The handwritten| signature on specimen Q2 may be suitable for significant comparisons with known handwriting exemplars. This item has been photographed for possible future comparisons. Indented writing was detected on the Ql envelope. The legible portion of the indented writing was interpreted to read, "S./14./95 CaPitaL PoLice THreaT Assessment". A copy of the indented writing is enclosed for your investigative assistance. No indented writing was observed on specimen Q2. No watermarks or special features were found on specimens Ql and Q2 which would identify the immediate source of these items. Specimens Ql and Q2 were searched through the Anonymous Letter File without effecting an identification. Representative copies of these items have been added to the file for possible future comparison purposes. It should be noted that DNA examinations may be possible on the Ql envelope and postage stamp. The Latent Fingerprint Section has been advised that this specimen should be processed in a manner ensuring the preservation of the flap and stamp -for possible future DNA examinations. Remarks: Should you desire additional handwriting examinations in the future, known handwriting exemplars should be obtained from all logical subjects and submitted to the Laboratory. These exemplars should consist of numerous repetitions of the | signature found on specimen Q2 prepared in ink on pnotocopies of the Q2 letter (signature covered to prevent being copied) on unlined sheets of paper of the same approximate size as the questioned item. Also, undictated samples of the subject's handwriting would be useful for comparison purposes. These samples can be obtained from correspondence, business records, applications, personal checking account records, et cetera.

be On January 11.4 - 1983 f Assistant United States Attorney ' b7C (AUSA) I San Francisco in a letter to SAC, Robert S. Cast II, San Francisco requested that a preliminary investigation be commenced regarding possible violations of the federal elections law, Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 602 and/or other statutes such as the federal mail fraud statute.
AUSAI | in his letter stated that several allegations concerning U.S. Congressman Tom Lantos, (Democrat, San Mateo) had been received. states that recently) )SA be William Royer, Lantos' election opponent in iyou ana [Wi b7C ~ i y a z j was inte r v i e w e d . | int ""[reported what may be v i o l a t i o n s of the f e d e r a l elections l a w .

TOM LANTOS ELECTIONS LAW

On January 11, 1983, Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) [" I San Francisco in a letter to SAC, Robert S. Cast II, San Francisco requested that a preliminary investigation be commenced regarding possible violations of the federal elections law, Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 602 and/or other be statutes such as the federal mail fraud statute. ' bvc AUSA | | in his letter stated that several allegations concerning U.S. Congressman Tom Lantos, (Democrat, San Mateo) had been received. (a staff _) states that recently _..w _ . .. 980 and 1982) was interviewed. | (reported what may be violations of the federal elections law, T-tt-lp 1.8. U.S. Code, Section 602. Briefly be Istated that one \o is currently employed 1 San Ha Ceo, California) may have b7C with ^ kicked back part of her salary while on Lantos' staff during 1980 congressional campaign,
AUSA

AUSA| [letter goes on to state that we have now received a proffer from one | [concerning Lantos1 activities while he was an executive with the California Teachers Association. Briefly,| [has described two Incidents in which Lantos accepted kick-backs in connection with awarding CTA contractors. b6 Since CTA is a union, this activity wmiTrt appear to violate 29 b7c U.S.C. g501 ( ) c . At least one of! [allegations had earlier been reported to us by I | The [ [allegations concern events wnicn UOOK. pxace outside tne statute of limitations but it appears that Lantos remained affiliated with CTA for a considerable period of time after the alleged kick-backs.

IgRCUSORg

Accordingly, AUSA f~~ I requested a preliminary investigating be commenced wh: ch would entail> initially! and other witnesses who may have interviewing been directly involved in the 1980 events and then interviewing Congressman Lantos. AUSAJ _Jthen stated that should there be any substance to the allegation! he would assume a full investigation that would be opened after consultation with Department of Justice.

November 22, 1993 The Honorable Tom Lantos U.S. House of Representatives 2182 Rayburn House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 Dear Colleague: This responds to your letter of November 19, 1993, regarding the acceptance of contributions to a series of irrevocable trust funds you established for your grandchildren under the California Uniform Gifts to Minors Act. You are the unpaid trustee of these trusts and will receive no benefit from them. The donor of the proposed contributions is a friend since before you were elected to Congress. House Rule 43, clause 4, prohibits Members,, officer, and employees from receiving either "directly or indirectly," gifts worth more than minimal value. The term "indirectly" refers mainly to gifts to the spouse or dependents of a House official. A gift to an official's spouse or dependent is considered an indirect gift to the official unless circumstances make it clear that the gift is truly independent of the spouse's or dependents's relationship to the Member. Your friend may make contributions to your grandchildren's trust funds since the donations are independent of your position as a Member of Congress. Furthermore, the gift rule only applies to spouses and dependents, and while not explicitly stated in your letter, it is assumed your grandchildren are not your dependents. The contributions need not be reported on your Financial Disclosure Statement. If you have any further questions, please contact the Committee's Office of Advice and Education at extension 5-3787. Sincerely,

Jim McDermott Chairman JS:EWH

I have been notified by the staff of the Committee on Standards that there are two questions with that filing. This letter and the attached materials are intended to respond to those questions. First, page 9 of my Financial Disclosure Report was apparently separated from the rest of the report when it was filed. I have attached to this letter page 9 of the Report which includes the last portion of Schedule VII - Travel Payments and Reimbursements and includes all of Schedule VIII - Positions. Second, information reported on page 4 of Schedule III - Assets and "Unearned" Income was incorrectly reported due to confusion regarding the information to be supplied in thjs schedule. The information regarding three assets that were reported needs to be adjusted.. I have indicated the corrected information on the amended form in bold and italic type. .'::; *i~ •,,, c|

I am writing this letter to you in connection with the filing of my May 15,2001 Annual Financial Disclosure Report. There are some significant changes in my financial status that are reflected in the report this year, and I want to make clear what those changes are because they may not be evident from simply comparing this current annual report with the one filed on May 15,2000. First, our financial situation has changed with the death of my mother-in-law which resulted in my wife's inheritance of property in Canada. One of those properties was sold this past year, and my wife still owns another. Second, last year we sold our family home in California which we have owned for over three decades. As you know, real estate values in the Bay Area have been particularly robust lately, I regret that I sold our house a bit past the peak of the real estate boom in our area, but the appreciation on the property was still substantiaL As a result of these changes in our financial status, we have transferred a number of assets into stocks and other securities. I felt that an explanation of our financial situation would help to put these changes into context. If you or your staff need any additional information or if your have questions, please contact me or my Chief of Staff, Dr. Robert R. King. Most cordially,

TOM LANTOS Member of Congress

East European Constitutional Review
Volume 9 Numbers 1/2 Winter/Spring 2000

Constitutional Watch
A country-by-country update on constitutional politics in Eastern Europe and the ex-USSR
Czech Republic - Czech politics remain dominated by a defacto coalition that consists of the ruling, nominally left-of-center Czech Social Democrat Party (CSDP) and the opposition, nominally right-of-center Civic Democratic Party (CDP). On January 26, Prime Minister Milos Zeman (CSDP) and parliament's speaker, Vaclav Klaus (CDP), renegotiated the terms of their original agreement. Under the new arrangement, five CSDP ministers will be dismissed and replaced with new CSDP members, in return for CDP's support of CSDP's proposed budget. The two parties also agreed to continue the attempt to amend the Constitution in order to reduce the president's powers and to alter the electoral system to favor the larger parties. This would be achieved by increasing the number of electoral districts from 8 to 35. They also agreed to push the country along the path of EU harmonization. On January 28, the Chamber of Deputies (parlia-ment's lower house) passed a variety of amendments to the Constitution that would curb the president's power. (Neither house had voted yet on the other amendments regarding the electoral formula.) Specifically, the amendments would strip the president of his constitutional authority to appoint the prime minister, the directors of the central bank, Supreme Court judges, and the head of the Supreme Control Office and to grant amnesties before trial; the amend-ments would also add additional grounds for recalling a president. Though CSDP and CDP have the neces-sary three-fifths majority to revise the Constitution in the lower flkse, they are just one vote short in the Senate (the upper house). The Christian Democratic Union-People's Party ^Bu-PP), Freedom Union (FU), and the Civic Democratic.Movement (COM) will vote against the amendments because the new electoral system-assuming it is passed-is designed to eliminate them from the political scene and because of their political alliance with President Vaclav Havel. Czech Republic.The Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia (CPBM), which holds the balance in the Senate on this issue, tends to oppose the changes because it, too, fears losing some of its parliamentary representation in an increasingly majoritarian electoral system. Further constitutional changes were stalled because of continued bickering between CSDP and CDP over which four ministers to replace (a substi-tute had already been found for the minister of health), and whether these replacements will be made before or after the budget is adopted. Clearly,, CpP -has a greater interest in changing the Constitution than CSDP since it believes that a majoritarian elec-toral system is likely to favor it at the expense of other centerright parties; it also regards the president's prerogatives as the chief threat to any future CDP government's freedom to maneuver. On February 24, the Chamber of Deputies passed .another constitutional amendment giving the govern-ment the authority to send Czech soldiers abroad and to station foreign troops on Czech soil without parliamen-tary approval for up to 60 days. The amendment is intended to facilitate Czech participation in NATO and hi various peacekeeping operations. Not every legislative issue involved the Constitution or the EU- On November 4-after years of debate-parliament passed a law creating the office of ombudsman. According to the law, the office will be located in Brno and will have an annual budget of approximately one million dollars. The ombudsman can both represent citizens who believe they have been discriminated against by the state and criticize the actions of state authorities. The government rejected a proposal by Peter Uhl, the chief human-rights commis-sioner and a former Charter 77 dissident, to create a special office for ethnic equality and integration intended specifically to address Romany affairs. A few laws that had come into effect at the begin-nmg <jf 2QQP led to considerable confusion because the authorities in charge of implementing them were not informed by the relevant ministries of the new rules or were not told how to apply them. For example, a new law on prison conditions was interpreted differently by various prison authorities. Although the law limited the number of packages prisoners can receive (to prevent drug smuggling) and required

that prisoners pay for their food and^Komrnodations, some prison directors thought the new code was instructing them to intrq-duce stricter, harsher ^Pnes into their prisons. Inmates respon^k with riots, protests, and hunger strikes. The prisoners also protested against poor hygienic standards, overcrowing, and the low quality of food. (The press noted that the daily cost of feeding police dogs was higher than that of feeding prisoners.) The revolts ended on January 13, when the Ministry of Justice agreed to consider the prisoners' complaints and allowed them to kfcmore goods hi the prison shops to compensate for the loss of food sent from home. The new law on border regulations required foreigners to present the border police with a form filled out in the Czech language and two photographs. Under this law, border police also may require foreigners to present proof of accommodation in the Czech Republic, health insurance, and financial support. Citizens from 26 "nonproblematic countries" (EU member states, the US, Canada, Israel, and the like) are exempt from the regulations. The new require-ments were not publicized in advance, and many visitors were left unprepared, creating great confusion at airports, as border police detained visitors from presumably "problematic" countries, including a group of South Korean business executives. More confusion resulted from another recently enacted law requiring all car owners to have insurance. The law resulted in a stampede of owners of broken-down or abandoned cars hoping to avoid fines by declaring that their cars no longer required insurance. The European Commission recently issued a report concluding that the salaries of Czech judges are disproportionately high relative to the amount of work they actually perform. The report stated that Czech judges work slowly and ineffectively against organized crime and white-collar crime. The average monthly salary in the public sector is 9,000 crowns ($257), while the typical judge takes home 52,000 crowns ($1,486). A Supreme Court judge is paid 71,000 crowns ($2,000) a month. Deputy-Minister of Justice Josef Baxa countered that judges must receive high salaries to compete with what lawyers earn in the private sector. The commission further claimed that judges were insufficiently special-ized and, in addition, spend an excessive amount of time on administrative duties. The report also noted that the judges' working conditions are unsatisfactory, their offices often lack modem equipment and infor-mation technology, and that many positions in local and regional courts remain vacant. As a consequence, the backlog of unresolved cases is now approaching a quarter of a million. Supreme Court chair Eliska Wagnerova recently reported that her court's productivity had increased, concluding 400 gfce cases in 1999 than it had in 1998. At the same time, it received 3,003 appeals, 346 more than in the previous yso1; 2,000 cases remain unre-solved, although fewer than 10 have been pending for more than two years. Wagnerova attributed the court's increased productivity to organizational changes and the temporary assignment of eight criminal-court judges to the Supreme Court for six months. In other judicial matters, on November 8, the Constitutional Court denied the appeal of Romany (gypsy) parents, who wished the Ministry of Education to send their children to ordinary schools. As many as 50 percent of Czech Romany children are sent to "special" schools, usually for .the mentally disabled or otherwise problematic children. The Romany parents argued that this practice constitutes a denial of their children's right to receive an education. The Court concluded that it lacked the authority to order the Ministry of Education to introduce a new policy designed to abolish racial discrimination. It reasoned that the decision to send Romany children to special schools was properly taken by teachers and psycholo-gists. The Romany parents plan to appeal the ruling to the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The most notable court battle of late was over the control of TV Nova-the largest television station hi the Czech Republic. The case pitted Ronald L,aud.er, American businessman, pmtothropist..and.former.ambassadQrtQ Augria, against Vladimir ^eznynfifcliSceMlu^ is not affiliated with any party. The station's popularity makes it significant from both economic and political perspectives. . ,i..\T 21, a company controlled by Zelezny, owns TV Nova' the State Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting. In 1993, Zelezny received the capital to create the television station and later for buying the company that controls GET 21 from Lauder in exchange for Zelezny's ^fcamitting himself to voting his majority share in- accordance with instructions from a Lauder-owned company, vME; Zelezny also undertook to purchase services only from a subsidiary of CME, CNTS, which he managed as well. According to CME, Zelezny began stripping the assets of CNTS after he gained control of it in 1998. Asset stripping by managers is rampant in the Czech Republic. What is unusual about the TV Nova case is that Zelezny allegedly did to a large foreign investor what Czech managers often do to state banks, holding companies, the National Property Fund, and the like.

Although fired by CME in March i Zelezny has continued to manage th^fcivision station under a new corporate name and ceased to purchase the services of Lauder's CNTS. In othe™ords, Zelezny executed an internal takeover of a company, effectively separating it from its owner. Lauder sued Zelezny in the Czech Republic and asked the Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting to restore the original owner-ship structure. The chances of ^•reign investor in the Czech courts succeeding against one of the country's most influential and powerful men are ICTS than promising. Given this state of affairs, Lauder also sued Zelezny for $300 million and the Czech state for $500 million at the International Commerce Court of Arbitration, in Stockholm. In response, Zelezny sold most of his shares in the company that owns TV Nova to two companies that are owned by his friends and associates. This transfer of ownership occurred despite an order by a Czech court to freeze the ownership of TV Nova. On November 12, the International Commerce Court issued a preliminary injunction hi favor of Lauder's CME against Zelezny, who ignored the court's ruling. Lauder's suit for damages against the Czech state-for failing to honor its international and bilateral Czech-American agreements to protect foreign investment-will be decided later this spring. Meanwhile, since Lauder realized that Zelezny could be defeated byDoJMcjIjrather than legal- means, he proceeded to exert pressure on the Czech government. American congressmentXoin^LanTo^nd Benjamin Oilman wrote to Prime Minister Zeman on his behalf; the issue was raised, as well, by S^cretafyof State Albright in her meetings with Zeman in the US, in November. During that visit, Lauder placed full-page advertisements in the New York Times and Washington Post, warning potential investors against doing business in the Czech Republic. In response, Zeman stated that the government had no legal right to interfere hi the dispute because the media are regulated by the independent Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting. The council, however, refuses to get involved, at least until the courts decide on the matter. Later, however, the council approved Zelezny's transfer of his shares. Even if he is forced to hand over all his remaining shares to Lauder, it would amount to only a small minority of the total shares he once owned. Czech journalists speculated that this development may strengthen Lauder's case in Stockholm, and that the Czech government may, as a result, attempt to come to some compromise agreement with Lauder, for example, by giving him another television station to run, such as CT2, the better of the state-owned networks.

anticorruption Clean Hands Operation, announced by Prime Minister Zeman on assuming office hi the summer of 1998, collapsed amid mutual recrimination and finger-pointing between Zeman and Minister without Portfolio Jaroslav Basta, who led the operation's work investigating financial and industrial criminality. Basta headed the Committee for Protecting Economic Interests and an advisory group within the committee. Zeman headed a government committee.that had identical anticorruption functions, and Basta and Zeman each accused the other's committee of inac-tivity and incompetence. Basta was replaced in a government reshuffle by the 27-year-old Karel Brezina, former chief of staff of the government office, who will now direct the anticrime effort. back

• , '

(1) Contributions to Grandchildren Over 18: Mr. Lantos has asked each of the ' grandchildren who is over 18 to notify him if he or she receives a gift to his or her account, or otherwise, from anyone omer that) I As we'explained, Mr. . *>6 Lantos is not required to seek clearance from the House tithics Committee for such £ifts • ' ' b7c because, under House Rule 26, the gifts are not deemed gifts to the Member if Mr. Lantos "has no cause to believe that [the gifts were] given because of his position in Congress." • Nevertheless, Mr. Lantos'will seek clearance for such gifts from the House Ethics , ' Committee out of an abundance of, caution. If such clearance is denied for some reason, ' •. '
Mr. Lantos will ask the grandchild not to accept the proffered gift. '

File No. 58C-NY-279452

THOMAS P. LANTOS, U.S. CONGRESSMAN; CFPO - LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OO:NY The investigation of this matter was predicated upon information brought to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SONY) by the counsel for Merrill Lynch Securities. Merrill Lynch developed the information as a result of an internal investigation of possible suspicious activity among related accounts. The nature of the information was as follows: Thomas P. Lantos, an eleven term U.S. Congressman for the 12th District of California, had established 17 separate accounts under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act for his grandchildren.|

b7D

Subsequent investigation revealed that: Lantos truly has 17 grandchildren. Lantos' "Congressional account" was a personal checking/savings account at the Wright Patman Congressional Credit Union. All relevant records for each of the 17 grandchildrens' accounts, all of Lantos' various personal accounts, Lantos' Congressional Financial Disclosure Forms, Lantos' tax returns, the grandchildrens' tax returns, and the arandchildrens parents' tax returns were obtained and reviewed.

b3 FRCP, Rule 6(e)

To: Re:

New York From: New York 58C-NY-279452, 09/30/2002

Lantos' tax returns, the grandchildrens' tax returns, and the qrandchildrens parents' tax returns were obtained and reviewed.
b3 FRCP, Rule 6(e)

Lantos was interviewed and explained that the donations to the grandchildrens' trust accounts arose from Lantos' personal friendship/relationship with the donors and their willingness to help educate the grandchildren. Lantos explained that he spends a tremendous amount of money on his grandchildren (i.e. tuition, orthodontia, clothing, travel, etc.) from his personal accounts. When his personal accounts run low, Lantos transfers money, by check, from his grandchildrens1 Merrill Lynch trust accounts into his personal accounts. Lantos believes he may have deposited some donor checks for the grandchildren directly into his personal accounts. Lantos believes that the amount he spends on the grandchildren from his personal accounts far outweighs what he takes out of their trust accounts. Lantos never made any attempt to keep an accounting of what he spends on the grandchildren or what he has withdrawn from their trust accounts. Lantos denied that any of the money withdrawn from the grandchildrens1 trust accounts was used for his personal expenses or benefit. Lantos denied that their was any quid pro quo for the donations. Donors accounting for over 95% of the total donations were interviewed. Without exception, the donors denied any quid pro quo for their donations, expecting or being promised anything in return, or having business before Congress or Lantos' committees. Analysis of records further indicated that the personal expenditures of Lantos and his wife were well within their known sources of income. Additionally, Lantos appropriately reflected the balances in each-of his personal--accounts-r and.the. interest, earnings thereon, in his Congressional Financial Disclosure Statements and federal income tax returns. The interest earnings on the grandchildrens' trust accounts was appropriately reflected on their federal income tax returns where applicable. The facts of the case were presented to the IRS on two occasions. Both times the IRS opined that the facts did not indicate any significant criminal or civil violation of tax law, and they declined to pursue prosecution on tax charges.

To: Re:

New York From: New York 58C-NY-279452, 09/30/2002

On 02/05/02, the SONY declined to prosecute Lantos, or any of the donors, in this matter. SDNY was insistent however that Lantos be required to submit in writing what steps he will take to eliminate co-mingling of the grandchi Idr ens' money with his own, and to eliminate potential conflicts of interest if in the future the donors have any business before Congress, Lantos' committees, or if the donors request Lantos1 assistance in any form, on any matter. SDNY's concerns in this regard were subsequently satisfied by the written plan submitted by Lantos' attornies.

Dear Special Agent This letter is to advise you of certain restrictions imposed upon you by Fed. R. Grim. P. 6(e) in connection with your present assignment to assist the United States Attorney's Office and a Grand Jury empaneled in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Under Rule 6(e), proceeding before the Grand Jury, including the identity of witnesses, the content of testimony, and the nature and contents of documents received pursuant to subpoena, are governed by the strictest requirements of secrecy. Disclosure of any matters occurring before the Grand Jury is absolutely prohibited, except insofar as authorized by judicial order, and as further described in the succeeding paragraphs of this letter. In the course of your duties in connection with the Grand Jury investigation, you may be called upon to examine and evaluate testimony, documents and records presented to the Grand Jury. Fed. R. Grim. P. 6(e) prohibits your use of such Grand Jury matters for any purpose other than assisting the attorneys for the Government in the performance of such attorneys' duties to enforce federal criminal law. Thus, you are not permitted to utilize the Grand Jury materials in this matter for any purpose other than to advise the Government attorneys with whom you are working in investigating violations of the federal criminal laws. Accordingly, you may not disclose to or discuss with anyone any of this information or any matters occurring before the Grand Jury except:

a.

the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York and the Assistant United States Attorneys assigned to this investigation; other attorneys employed by the Department of Justice, if so requested, and then only as directed by one of the Assistant United States Attorneys in charge of the case; other Government personnel who are actually participating in this Grand Jury investigation; and persons interviewed in the course of the investigation with respect to the subject matter of the investigation.

b.

c.

d.

A failure to observe the terms of Grand Jury secrecy outlined in this letter may result in a citation for contempt of court and may also result in the dismissal of the case in which the unauthorized disclosure of grand jury materials occurs. All records, documents and files obtained in the course of the Grand Jury's investigation will remain in the custody of the Grand Jury and the United States Attorney's Office and no such documents or records may be taken from the United States Attorney's Office without prior approval by the Assistant United States Attorney in charge of the case. In the event you have questions as to the proper use of grand jury materials, please contact the attorney with whom you are working to discuss the matter. Very truly yours, MARY JO WHITE United States Attorney

Surviving the Horrors of the Holocaust, Tom Lantos Got a Fresh Start at the UW. Now Serving in Congress, His Story is Part of an Oscar-Winning Film.
By Jon Marmor

At 6 am. sharp, the Congressional swimming pool in Washington, D.C., opens for business. Without fail, Tom Lantos is first in line, champing at the bit to begin his daily ritual of 45 minutes of swimming laps. It's just the beginning of another long, grading day of meetings, hearings and deal-making for the 71-year-old Democratic representative from the 12th Congressional District in California But it's one he tackles with unfettered passion and awe, especially when he sees the American flag flying on top of the Capitol building as he makes the short walk from his apartment to the office every day. "I want to make the most of life," says Lantos, who is in his 20th year in Congress. "I like to work hard to make this a better country, to provide a just government for our people and make sure we have learned from the past." The past defines this University of Washington alumnus in a way few of his fellow former classmates know. Lantos is the only Holocaust survivor ever elected to Congress. A Hungarian-born Jew who grew up during the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, Lantos is one of five people featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary The Last Days. The movie was executive-produced by Steven Spielberg and his Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to videotaping and archiving interviews of Holocaust survivors the world over.
Rep. Tom Lutos, '49, '50, aad his wile Annette. Pk«to by Geoffrey Clifford, O 1997 Suvlvors of the Sboak Visa»l History Foundation.

A leading human rights statesman, he's an expert in foreign policy, and a force in investigating government waste, fraud and mismanagement When people tell nun his daily schedule is crazy, he just laughs. After all, handling his myriad duties in the nation's capital, jetting 3,000 miles back home to his upper-middle class district south of San Francisco, and keeping up with his wife, two grown daughters and 17 grandchildren is nothing.

"Compared

vhat I have been through," he says, "t!

s easy."

In 1978, he took a year's leave of absence to go to Washington, D.C., to work as a foreign affairs adviser to Sen. Joe Biden (D-Delaware). He enjoyed it so much, he pondered running for Congress after the 1979 assassination in Guyana of Leo Ryan, the House representative from San Mateo. "But Sen. Biden reminded me that I promised to stay for the duration of my commitment," Lantos says. "It was also a good thing, because had I run, I would have lost." In 1980, Lantos threw his hat into the ring against incumbent Republican Bill Royer, who succeeded Ryan. That move earned him ridicule from observers who said Lantos had no chance, never having held public office and running as a Democrat during a year when the Ronald Reagan-Republican movement was sweeping the nation. But beating the odds was old hat to Lantos, who defeated Royer to become one of only two Democrats nationwide to unseat an incumbent Republican that year. That started in motion a political second life that has kept the confident, erudite Lantos in the public eye and fighting injustice for the past 20 years. He is known far and wide for his support of Israel, and for fighting government waste, such as his stint as chair of the committee investigating HUD scandals of fraud, influence peddling and political favoritism in the 1980s.

Lantos' passion for good government knows no bounds. "My life's experience taught me. I had seen what a police state does to people," Lantos says. "I had to be a part of the policy part, to make things better. I have developed a lifetime love affair with politics and government. I take government very seriously. I have a passion to make sure we prevent others from going through what I did." I Despite his national exposure I as a longtime member of 1 Congress, Lantos and his wife have rarely told their stories publicly. "I don't want to relive that nightmare," he explains. But back in 1995, when he was approached by the Shoah Foundation ("shoah" is Hebrew for calamity) for an oral-history project on the Holocaust, he agreed. When Spielberg's foundation decided to make a documentary featuring some of those interviewed, director James Moll chose to feature Lantos among four

other Hungarian survivors' stories. "I did it because I feH the educational value of the film tor generations to come would be enormous," says Lantos. "It was not an easy or pleasant task but I knew it would be a powerful and gripping reminder of this nightmare that must not be forgotten." For the making of the movie, Lantos returned with four of his 17 grandchildren to the bridge in northern Hungary where he was forced to work. They listened somberly as he tells his story. Lantos was one of five Hungarian survivors asked to participate to show a representational view of what happened to the entire country. Each survivor and selected family members then traveled to Europe with the documentary film crew to revisit their homes, where they were imprisoned, and where they worked. The movie was shot on 35mm film, much of it with a handheld camera, had no narrator, and included rare footage to tell a single, unique chapter of the Holocaust while conveying a sense of its magnitude. The movie, winner of the 1999 Academy Award for best documentary, is one part of the Shoah Foundation's mission to videotape and preserve eyewitness testimonies of Holocaust survivors. To date, more than 50,000 videotaped interviews in a total of 57 countries and 31 languages have been gathered. "For me to be where I am, given my background, is something I cannot possibly believe," Lantos says. "Fifty years ago, I was a hunted animal in the jungle, and now I am dealing with issues of state of a country I love so deeply. It all seems like a dream, and it places an incredible sense of responsibility on me. "It is why I will carry on."
Jon Marmoc, '94, is associate editor of Columns. The Last Days uas released in video stores in September.

Once the war was over, Lantos began his studies, first in medicine ("until they brought in the first corpse, and I was through with medical school"), then economics at the University of Budapest in the fall of 1946. The following summer, he was awarded a Hillel Foundation scholarship to study in the United States. "I saw this little notice on a bulletin board for the University of Washington, in a place called 'SEE-tle,'" he recalls, purposely mispronouncing the city's name to show how unfamiliar he was with it 50 years ago. "1 never dreamed I had a chance. I was stunned when they called me in to tell me I was going to study there." He landed penniless in New York City in August 1947, with only a prized Hungarian salami, which was confiscated by U.S. Customs officials, to his disappointment. His arrival in Seattle-this city he had never heard of-was like Dorothy landing in Oz. "Totally unreal," he says. "Here I was, coming out of the Holocaust, starvation, poverty, persecution, the worst horror of mankind, and I had landed in this bucolic setting. People were friendly and wonderful, there was all the food I could eat. I couldn't believe my eyes."

I Despite being in a foreign land, 1 Lantos felt right at home. He I joined a fraternity, Sigma Alpha jMu, where he spent three funI filled years while studying (economics, earning his bachelor's [degree in 1949 and his master's in 1950. Howard Nostrand, then a professor of romance languages, I even had Lantos over for I Thanksgiving during his first year. 1 "He came into my office one I morning, saying he needed work," JNostrand, now retired, recalls. "He ' said I resembled his father. We were quite close. He was a very promising student, a person of marked intellectual curiosity. He was always asking questions." The two remain in touch today . Enjoying his new life with unbridled enthusiasm, Lantos jammed as much as humanly possible into each day. In addition to a full load of classes, he had an armful of part-time jobs: he ushered at the Seattle Symphony in a borrowed tuxedo, he worked nights stacking shelves at a local grocery store, he tutored Latin, German, French and Italian, and he delivered furniture. He also was the "sandwich man" on

sorority row, selling sandwiches, milk, and other goodies to students. "I worked very hard," he says. "A lot of old people were depending on me in Hungary. I was a great entrepreneur." With some of the money not used for tuition and living expenses, he bought chocolate and other supplies and sent them to relatives and friends in Hungary every week. "I was full of energy," says Lantos, who also managed to fit hi swimming in Lake Washington, jogging and playing tennis. "You have to remember, getting beyond World War II, I felt like I was born again. It was so much fun. I took a lot of joy hi everything life had to offer." While a student here, he approached Nostrand, looking for more work, and convinced the French professor to hire him to teach Hungarian at the ripe age of 19. (Lantos is fluent in five languages.) "It was more of a regional studies class, where we covered Central European history," Lantos recalls. "It helped pay for my schooling." It also made the UW only the second university in the nation to teach Hungarian (after Indiana University). It was also a way for Lantos to carry on a long-held tradition of teaching in his family. After leaving the UW~"it was the happiest time of my life," he says with pride-he earned a Ph.D. in international economics at Cal-Berkeley, and began a 30-year career as an economics professor at San Francisco State University. Though he was moving up in the world, his work ethic didn't slow down for a second. He also was a business consultant, developed his own public television program on international affairs, and was actively involved in state and national politics, his real love. • Life in Congress—And on Film • Return to the BeRinning of "Against All Odds" • Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation Home Page • Return to September 1999 Table of Contents

Born the orNy .child of upper-middle class Jewish parents in Budapest in 192%/^arltpJ grew up during a time when Hungary was slowly being taKraPoS'er by the Nazis. When he was 10 years old, he bought his first newsoaper-an experience he vividly recalls today. The headline read, vHitler Marches into Austria." "I sensed that .this historic moment would have a tremendous impact on the lives of Hungarian Jews, my family and myself," he says. If only he knew. When he was 16, German troops invaded his homeland—and along with them came Adolf Eichmann, with orders to exterminate the Jewish population of Hungary. By the end of the summer of 1944, most of the Jews outside of Budapest had been sent to Auschwitz.

Lantos and other young Jewish mien were sent to work camps. He was dispatched to Szob, a town 40 miles north of Budapest, where his forced labor group's duty was to maintain an important bridge on the Budapest-Vienna rail line. The work was treacherous at best, and he experienced wild highs and lows—delight at watching Allied bombers destroy the bridge, yet frustration because he knew it meant he and his comrades would have to rebuild it Then there was the day an air raid killed all the young workers except Lantos. "I was convinced I wouldn't survive," he says. Despite his imprisonment, he managed to keep in contact with his

o

family, and Annette Tillemann, a childhood friend who went into hiding with mother shortly after the German inva .. Once, Lantos escaped from the camp but he was caught and oeaten to a pulp." Desperate with what his life had become, and feeling he had nothing to lose, he tried another escape. When a guard wasnt paying much attention, he disappeared. His blue eyes and blonde hair fooled Nazi troops into thinking he was not a Jew, but the entire tune he was trying to make his way back to Budapest, he was wracked with fear that his Jewish identity would be discovered if he were ordered by a Nazi soldier to drop his pants.

He eventually found refuge in a Budapest apartment building rented by Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg and under Swedish diplomatic protection. Wallenberg saved approximately 100,000 Hungarian Jews with his secret refuges and by providing fake Swiss passports. (To this day, Lantos remains deeply indebted to Wallenberg for saving his life. A portrait of Wallenberg—who disappeared after being imprisoned by the Russians—hangs behind his desk in the Rayburn House Office Building.) "It was a three-bedroom apartment designed for one family," Lantos recalls, "And there must have been 50 to 60 people crowded into it." Noting Lantos' "Aryan" coloring, Wallenberg put Lantos to work helping put in an elaborate anti-Nazi underground, delivering a bottle of medicine or loaf of bread to Jews Wallenberg had in hiding throughout Budapest. Dressed in a military cadet's uniform, Lantos was able to move around undetected by Nazi authorities. His good deeds, however, were not based strictly on altruism or a desire to help his fellow man, but fatalism. "I probably wouldn't survive," Lantos thought at the time. "I decided I might be of some use. "In retrospect, I was doing things I never should have done, because they took more courage than I'm sure I had." As the war entered 1945, life in Budapest deteriorated. It was under constant shelling and the Germans and Russians engaged in houseto-house fighting. Then, at 3 a.m. on a cold January day, a Russian soldier burst into the safeiiouse where Lantos was staying, liberating the teen-ager and his many housemates. By mid-January, the German army pulled out, leaving the Russians in control of the city. But Lantos' relief was short-lived-a search for his mother and the rest of his family ended in vain. They had all been killed. Miraculously, Lantos was able to re-establish contact with Annette Tillemann, his old childhood friend who had gone into hiding during the German invasion. All he had was an old address of some of her family friends in Switzerland. He was not aware that Annette and her mother had escaped to Switzerland. He sent a letter, and somehow, even though the Hungarian postal system was in disarray, it got through. Stunned and thrilled to learn that Lantos was still alive, Tillemann was desperate to contact him. Knowing it was impossible

to reach him by mail, she gamely boarded an old bus for an excruciating -day journey back to Budapest, with r ing more than a tiny paicel containing some food. Her homecoming was devastating. She learned that her father, grandparents and all but one relative who remained in the city had been killed. But she was able to get word to Lantos that she was back in town, and after a year's separation, they were reunited. They would never be apart after that, and in fact, are still together after 49 years of marriage. • Arrival in Seattle: Dorothy in the Land of Oz • Life in Congress—And on Film • Return to the Beginning of "Against All Odds" • Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation Home Page • Return to September 1999 Table of Contents

November 22, 1993 The Honorable Tom Lantos U.S. House of Representatives 2182 Rayburn House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 Dear Colleague: This responds to your letter of November 19, 1993, regarding the acceptance of contributions to a series of irrevocable trust funds you established for your grandchildren under the California Uniform Gifts to Minors Act. You are the unpaid trustee of these trusts and will receive no benefit from them. The donor of the proposed contributions is a friend since before you were elected to Congress. House Rule 43, clause 4, prohibits Members,, officer, and employees from receiving either "directly or indirectly," gifts worth more than minimal value. The term "indirectly" refers mainly to gifts to the spouse or dependents of a House official. A gift to an official's spouse or dependent is considered an indirect gift to the official unless circumstances make it clear that the gift is truly independent of the spouse's or dependents's relationship to the Member. Your friend may make contributions to your grandchildren's trust funds since the donations are independent of your position as a Member of Congress. Furthermore, the gift rule only applies to spouses and dependents, and while not explicitly stated in your letter, it is assumed your grandchildren are not your dependents. The contributions need not be reported on your Financial Disclosure Statement. If you have any further questions, please contact the Committee's Office of Advice and Education at extension 5-3787. Sincerely,

Jim McDermott Chairman JSrEWH

The Nazis invaded Hungary in March 1944 and LANTOS was placed in a forced labor camp by the Nazis. While in the forced labor camp, LANTOS' job was to rebuild a bridge. The bridge was constantly being bombed by American and British planes. Many of LANTOS' co-workers were killed in the bombings. LANTOS described this as a "schizophrenic" experience since he cheered for the Americans and British to be successful in bombing the bridge, while at the same time not wanting to die. LANTOS' entire family was killed in the Holocaust. LANTOS' experiences during World War II caused him to grow up very quickly and have a very serious, mature outlook on life. After the war LANTOS attended college in Hungary and was awarded an academic scholarship to the University of Washington (U of W) in Seattle. LANTOS came to the United States in August 1947. LANTOS received a BA degree from U of W in 1949 and a Masters degree from U of W in 1950. LANTOS received a Ph.D. from the University of California in 1953. LANTOS worked for 30 years as an economics professor at San Francisco State University. In November 1980, LANTOS was elected to Congress. LANTOS has been re-elected 11 times.

LANTOS and his wife have a joint personal account at Merrill Lynch, an almost dormant account at Wells Fargo Bank, a joint personal account at the Congressional Credit Union (CCU), and a joint personal account at Schwab & Company (Schwab). The CCU account is made up of a checking account, a $10 savings account, and a money market account. The Schwab account is just a money market account. The balance in the Schwab account is purely the LANTOS' money and most of the balance is from the sale of the LANTOS' house in California. LANTOS transfers money from the Schwab account to his Merrill Lynch account when the Merrill Lynch account goes overdraft. To the best of his recollection, LANTOS never transferred money from his Merrill Lynch account to the Schwab account. LANTOS believes it is possible that he transferred money from the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts to the Schwab account.

Merrill Lynch account. LANTOS has never been disappointed with the grandchildrens' use of these cards. The two grandchildren who are living with LANTOS in Washington, B.C. right now have access to LANTOS' CFCU account. When the balances in LANTOS' personal accounts get low because of what he pays on the grandchildrens' behalf, he withdraws money from the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts to "partially" reimburse himself. All of the withdrawals LANTOS has made from the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts have been for this purpose. LANTOS does not reimburse himself after each expense he pays for the grandchildren, but rather just makes lump sum transfers periodically. LANTOS withdraws the money from the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts by having Merrill Lynch draw a check(s) and then depositing the check (s) into one of his accounts. LANTOS believes that the amount he spends on the grandchildren far outweighs the amount he withdraws from their Merrill Lynch trust accounts. LANTOS is not meticulous as an accountant and has not attempted to keep an accounting of the expenses he has paid for the grandchildren and/or how they match up with the amounts he has withdrawn from their Merrill Lynch trust accounts. LANTOS theorized tha_L«__£flr_example, when he recently purchased the piano for the he probably should have divided the cost of the piano by seven, and then withdrawn that amount from each of the seven grandchildren's Merrill Lynch trust accounts in order to have a proper accounting. For many years, the grandchildren's accounts were just funded by donations from LANTOS and his wife's personal accounts.

pay have made contributions. The donors' checks were always made payable to the grandchildren. For the donors who gave only one or two checks, LANTOS would have the donors make their checks payable to grandchildren who were currently in college. LANTOS deposited the donors' checks into the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts, but he may have deposited some of the donors' checks into his CFCU account. LANTOS believes the money in the grandchildrens' Merrill Lynch trust accounts is less than what their education will ultimately cost since most will go on for advanced degrees. LANTOS and his wife do not live an extravagant lifestyle. LANTOS and his wife's income is modest and basically consists of LANTOS' congressional salary, LANTOS' retirement benefits, and interest income on investments. LANTOS' retirement benefits are low because he chose to equalize the benefits for his wife when he passes. They have a tiny, one bedroom apartment in Washington, D.C., and have always driven used cars. LANTOS says they basically live vicariously through the grandchildren by spending money on them. LANTOS never used any of the money given to his grandchildren for his personal benefit. LANTOS stated that as a grandfather and economist, he "understands the concept of fiduciary responsibility". LANTOS had no quid pro quo with any of the donors. LANTOS never let any of these donations to his grandchildren influence him in his capacity as a U.S. Congressman. As an example, LANTOS explained that| ^one legislative issue is oil drilling in Alaska. | [is in favor of the drilling, and LANTOS has always voted against it.
