Destruction of Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter
Illustrated in Newly Published Photo Essay

NEW YORK—In May,
1948, John Phillips was in
the Middle East covering
the birth of Israel for Life
magazine. As a Protestant,
he was allowed to travel
with the Arab Legion and
was in the center of events
when the assault was
launched against the Old
Jewish Quarter of Jerusa-
lem.
He was able to record the
taking of the prisoners, the
actual surrender on May 28,
the wounded and the dying
defenders, the flight of the
refugees—and the looting of
the Old Quarter. This last
bit of coverage nearly cost
John Phillips his life and

his film had to be smuggled
out of the country. Most of
the pictures he took during
this time were never pub-
lished.
In May, 1975, Jerusalem's
Mayor, Teddy Kollek, hav-
ing heard about the exist-
ance of these pictures, met
Phillips in New York. Kol-
lek proposed that Phillips
attempt to find some of the
people he had photographed
twenty-seven years before
and, although Phillips had
serious misgivings about
the possibility of tracing
them after so many years,
he and his wife, Anna
Maria, undertook the
search.

Months later, to their own
amazement, they had lo-

Listen to Us, World Leaders

By MERIAM MARGOLIS

We are the stiff-necked
people
Of stubborn persistence
We are the tenacous ones
Of unmatched resistance!

We loathe the sound of
battle
We_ hate bloodshed and
strife
But we'll defend our free-
dom
Dearer to us than life!
Forged in bitter struggles
Our will is iron strong
We weigh your every plan
And we reject what's
wrong!

Look at us, our knees un-
bent
Our backs are firm and
straight
We stand for life, not sui-
cide, --
Don't try to twist our fate!

Our goal is peace with jus-
tice!
No matter how hard you
press
This is the price we're ask-
ing
We'll settle for no less!

Listen to us, world leaders,
And listen to us well
We are the tiny nation
The Jews of Israel!
