Yitzhak Shimkin
Hagana Veteran

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Yitzhak Shimkin, a
Hagana veteran who
planned and almost car-
ried out an attempt to as-
sassinate Hitler in 1939,
died at his home in Haifa
Feb. 23 at age 72.
Mr. Shimkin was born
near Odessa in 1905 and
settled in Palestine in
1921 where he studied at
the Herzliya Gymnasium
and joined the Hagana.
Later he studied electri-
cal engineering in Europe
and became a manufac-
turer of electrical
appliances in Palestine,
many of which he in-
vented and patented.
In 1938, he saw films of
Hitler's triumphant
entry into Vienna after
the Anschluss. After the
Munich pact, he predicted
that the Nazis would soon
take over all of Czechos-
lovakia and presented a
plan to the Hagana com-
mand to assassinate Hi-
tler when he entered
Prague.
The plan was rejected
but Mr. Shimkin decided
to attempt it alone. In 1939
he went to Europe by way
of Beirut with two hand
grenades concealed in a
pillow. He was in Prague
when Hitler entered the
city, but had to abandon
his plan at the last minute
because Hitler rode in a
closed car.
Mr. Shimkin was
awarded the anti-Nazi
fighters ,medal by Israel.
