An Autobiography

-

"Although there are many Holocaust
books, this one is important and
special." Elie Wiesel

o fleet of tall ships,
no enthusiastic crowd
of millions flocked to
the Jewish Museum in New
York City Oct. 16 to kick-off
the nation-wide celebration of
the centennial of David
Ben-Gurion's birth.
It's probably not that
America's five million Jews
think less of Israel's founding
premier than of the Statue of
Liberty. It's that — despite
the liberal use of the word
"hero" — the hoopla has been
contained.
Even the organization that
is coordinating the celebra-
tion, the David Ben-Gurion
Centennial Committee of the
United States, began the
American celebration not
with a litany of speeches, but
with a look at Ben-Gurion
the person.
The glimpses were featured
in samples of hours of unused
shots from a 1956 interview
with Ben-Gurion by CBS
newsman Edward R. Murrow
— now part of the collection
of the Jewish Museum's Na-
tional Jewish Archive of
Broadcasting.
Regularly dragging on his
trademark cigarette, Murrow
inquired about personal and
political issues. He asked
Ben-Gurion if ever during his
50 years in Palestine and Is-
rael he considered giving up.
"No," he responded, chuckl-
ing at the thought. In fact, he
continued to challenge him-
self.
At age 69, Ben-Gurion
seemed to be getting accus-

tomed to his modest wooden
house at Sde Boker, built in
1954 on land he desperately
wanted Israel to utilize. He
chose the site after happen-
ing upon it while traveling
through the Negev.
Having studied Buddhism
in Asia, the premier admired
that region's moral teachers
and predicted a changing
world. "I believe now the
world is made one with mod-
ern communication ... he
told Murrow.
Would he conduct talks
with Arab leaders? "If they
want to talk peace," he de-
clared, noting that the Arabs
would eventually see that Is-
rael could help them improve
their sanitation, education
and development. He accom-
panied his staccato syllables
by pounding the arm of his
wooden chair.
Murrow asked Ben-
Gurion's wife, Paula, why she
didn't have servants in her
Negev home. Admitting she
had occasional housekeeping
help, but only that, she har-
kened back to her socialist
roots and replied, "I never be-
lieved in exploiting people."

Murrow biographer A.M.
Sperber told one more anec-
dote to the audience of more
than 200. As Murrow pre-
pared to leave Sde Boker, he
realized he hadn't thanked
Ben-Gurion. Murrow knocked
on Ben-Gurion's door, but re-
ceived no answer. Hearing
water running, he peaked in-
side to find Israel's prime
minister wearing an apron
and washing coffee cups.
Murrow fought an impulse to
film the scene concluding
