Avriel's Fascinating Novel
Details 'Illegal' Immigration

Ehud Avriel, the Israeli
Consul General for the Mid-
west who will be the con-
cluding speaker for the Is-
rael Independence Week
events at the Jewish Com-
munity Center 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, will also be auto-
graphing copies of his new
book "Open the Gates" at a
public reception following
his speech.
Published by Atheneum,
"Open the Gates" details the
personal experiences of
Avriel during 10 years with
the Mossad — the move-
ment within the Haganah
which funneled thousands
of Jews into Israel before,
during and after World War

II.

Avriel cautions the reader

that "Open the Gates" is not
a complete account. It deals
with his personal experi-
ences from the time of Hit-
ler's occupation of Austria
in 1938 to the founding of
the state of Israel in 1948.

Golda Meir, in her pre-
face to Avriel's book, ex-
plains that "Survival was
no longer sufficient as an
aim. The struggle now was
not for Jewish lives, but
for Jewish souls — for the
entire personality of the
Jewish people in the dec-
ades and centuries to
come. . .

"This is what the story of
the Mossad is really about,
and this is why it deserves
to be told:And Ehud Avriel,
who was one of this group,
and participated in so many
of its actions, can tell the
story as one of those who
created the Mossad."
Avriel writes of the Mos-
sad's clandestine operations
throughout Europe to
smuggle Jews past the Bri-
tish and into Palestine.

"Illegal" efforts, diplomatic
moves and the planning and
execution of clandestine op-
erations are dramatically
detailed.
Avriel expertly weaves
the international situation
into the exploits of those he
was personally in contact
with to keep the reader in-
formed of the total situation
throughout this fast-moving
work. "Open the Gates" is a
fascinating work that gives
the reader a personal view
of one of the most extraordi-
nary rescue missions in the
history of mankind.

Avriel has continued to
serve Israel since that
time. He became Israel's
first full ambassador (to
Prague), and headed the
prime minister's office
under Ben-Gurion, the
treasury under Levi Esh-
kol and served under
Golda Meir when she was
foreign minister.

He has served as Israeli
ambassador to several coun-
tries, including Italy.
