I was delighted to read your profile of
Ann Newman: "Eyewitness To Israeli
History" ("The War For Independence
Remembered;' April 24, A40).
I felt compelled to advise you that
I, too, was an eyewitness to history in
Jerusalem during the struggle for Israeli
independence.
The theme of the Palmach History
Museum in Ramat Aviv — "Not on a
Sliver Plate" — means that Israeli inde-
pendence was not served on a silver plat-
ter; it was won by blood and courage of
people like Ann Newman and me.
Unlike Ann, I was inducted to the
Haganah in September 1947, two months
before the U.N. voted on the partition of
Palestine. I was an active arms-bearing
member of the Haganah in Talpiyo, a
Jewish neighborhood between Jewish
Jerusalem and Kibbutz Ramat Rachel,
overlooking the road to Bethlehem. I was
wounded on May 15 when a lead a squad
of Haganah members in liberating the
British Camp Allenby, which the man-
date authorities "conveniently" opened to
the Arabs even though the camp was on
Jewish National Fund land.
I will be sharing my story at a lunch
and learn May 10 after Shabbat morning
services at Congregation Beth Shalom in
Oak Park.

Alex's Story
Just read your Editor's Letter about Alex
Graham and I was touched ("Beyond
The Door); May 1, A5). I didn't know
Alex, but at the time of her diagnosis
and eventual death, I was teaching piano

to many of her friends, and there were
lots of tears from these young people at
the time.
Of course, I didn't know that in just a
few years, I would be battling this terrible
disease of cancer (ovarian) myself; so
now her story is even more touching to
me. I look forward to reading her story
when the book comes out. Thanks for
making us aware of this courageous
young woman's story.

Corrections
• In the main photograph for "Shir
Shalom Milestone"
(May 1, page A38),
the man at the far
left is misidentified.
He should have been
identified as the late
Wally Sampson.
• In "A Bountiful
Wally
Passover" (May 1,
Sampson
page A37), Yad Ezra's
operations director,
Elaine Ryke, should have been included
as the person responsible for all inside
operations of the Berkley agency, includ-
ing those involving clients, food, vol-
unteers and the warehouse. She also is
responsible for the Passover distribution,
directing support staff and volunteers.
•Arnie Goldman's Community
View "Horror and Heroes" (May 1,
A26) should have stated that 570,000
Hungarian Jews died in the Holocaust.
• In "New Time For Commemoration"
(May 1, page A8), the phone number for
Workmen's Circle should have been listed
as (248) 432-5677.
