Author Judith Maro
Alan D. Abbey
uthor Judith Maro was
born in Jerusalem, fought
for the Haganah, moved to
Wales after marrying a British soldier
stationed in pre-state Palestine and
went on to become a noted novelist
who wrote in Welsh and English, She
published a thriller two years ago at
age 89. Maro died recently at 91 in the
British resort town of Swansea.
Her publisher, Robat Gruffudd,
of Welsh publishing house Y Lolfa,
called her a "special person, a cultured
and committed Jewish woman who
enriched the life of Wales through
her books in Welsh and English, and
through her interesting and creative
family. Even at a good old age, she had
a sharp, independent mind and a chal-
lenging and questioning spirit."
She was in the Auxiliary Territorial
Service, the women's branch of the
British Army in Israel during World
War II, but was also in the Haganah.
She met Jonah Jones, a British soldier,
in the British army education center
at Mount Carmel. According to Jones'
2004 obituary, they married clandes-
tinely in defiance of military protocol.
During the early days of Israel, Maro
taught Hebrew to new immigrants. But
Jones, who later became a prominent
sculptor, had a deep desire to return to
his Welsh homeland, and they resettled
there. Maro, whose skill at languages
gave her fluency in Arabic, Russian,
Hebrew, English and Welsh, immersed
herself in Welsh culture and identified
with it — yet remained something of
Maro's last novel, The Stoat, was
a murder mystery set in Wales that
features a Jewish girl, Polish recluse
and Welsh detective. Her publisher
described it as "a tense political thriller
about the hunting down of a wartime
Nazi executioner in the Welsh country-
side by, among others, a Jewish girl" set
in the early 1980s.
