Carl MARX, alias Auguste: German. MARX was a journalist of German-Jewish extraction from the Saar. Fleeing to France after the Saarland plebiscite he worked as an informant for the French and later ostensibly for the Italians, although they locked him up for double-crossing them to the French (as well as currency and people smuggling). He then fled to North Africa, where in July 1941 he initiated unexplained contact with German intelligence in Tangier. In May 1942 he escaped to Gibraltar and was sent to the UK for interrogation. He was interned temporarily. Post war he returned to the Federal Republic of Germany, published a German-Jewish newspaper in Dusseldorf and acted as the Rhineland correspondent for the Jewish Chronicle
