NEW YORK (ZINS) —
British Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher "almost
wept" during the recent
economic summit in Ottawa
when the subject of
Menahem Begin came up.
According to Canadian
Prime Minister Pierre
Trudeau, she said she could
never forgive Begin for hav-
ing ordered the hanging of
two British sergeants in
June, 1947, when he was
commander of the Irgun
Zvai Leumi.
(The two soldiers were
hanged after the British
mandatory authorities
hanged seven captured
Irgun members. The British

fill Iminl./H,1

stopped executing Jewish
prisoners after the two
sergeants were hanged).
Trudeau, quoted by
Hearst reporter John Wal-
lach, also said that Mrs.
Thatcher still held the re-
taliation' against Begin and .
pledged that she would
never meet with him unless
she "absolutely had to" be-
cause of the hanging of the
sergeants.
William Safire of the
New York Times asked
Begin about his reaction.
He said: "Two years ago,
I went to London on a
private visit and Mrs.
Thatcher invited me to 10

Hirshhorn Thought Museum
Was Good Deed for Jewry

Begin Doubts Rift With Thatcher

WASHINGTON — On
the last day of shiva for
Joseph Hirshhorn in his
walled, four-story, art-filled
home just off Washington's
famous ambassadorial
quarter, some 20 men joined
in the morning prayers and
to recite the kadish.
Those present included
Chicago Congressman Sid-
ney Yates, dean of the 26
Jewish members of the U.S.
House of Representatives;
Daniel Beerstin, the Libra-
rian of Congress; Sol
Linowitz, President Car-
ter's representative in the
Egyptian-Israeli-American
autonomy negotiations, and
novelist Herman Wouk.
Held in the elegant draw-
ing room on the mansion's
second floor, the minyan
was in keeping with Hir-
shhorn's devotion to his
heritage in his personal
way. For all the splendor of
the works of art in his home
and in the gardens behind
the walls, he was to it that a
simple mezuza was per-
manently fastened to the
door post of the front
entrance.
"He was always very
favorable about his
Jewishness," Washing-
ton lawyer, Ira Lowe,
said. "When he talked of
his museum he would
say, on occasion, 'It. can't
hurt the Jews.' He felt the
museum was his way of
contributing a good deed
of lasting importance —
in perpetuity — on behalf
of the Jewish people. It
was his mitzva."
Lowe said that Hirshhorn
"didn't collect Jewish art as
a separate pursuit but he
collected Jewish artists —
not because they were Jews
but because they were good
artists." Stephen Weil, de-
puty director of the Hir-
shhorn Museum, agreed he
did not collect specifically
Jewish ceremonial art. "He
was not in that area at all,"
Weil said.
Among his last activities,
Lowe recalled, was his
attendance at the showing
of "Image Before My Eyes,
the film of Polish Jews be-
fore the Nazi invasion. He
liked to read the works of
Isaac Bashevis Singer and
treasured a copy of one the
Nobel Laureate had a u-
thographed for him.

The question of naming
the museum for Hirshhorn
was raised to the level of an
inquiry in the 1979s. Was
the U.S. government ob-
liged under the Johnson-
Hirshhorn agreement to use
Hirshhorn's name?

Elmer Staats, then the
Controller General, ruled
that if the government did
not use his name then,
under the agreement, Hir-
shhorn could withdraw his
commitment. And so, in Oc-
fober, 1974, the Joseph Hir-
shhorn Museum and
Sculpture Garden was
opened.
