Nostalgia Sunday – Images from Israel October ’73
Recently, I was gifted with a book, “Israel October ’73 Yom Kippur War”. And when I “gifted” I mean that someone was getting rid of a pile of books, I saw it and, grabbing it by its tattered cover, yelped, “You have to give this to me, I can write a Nostalgia posting about it!”
The book was published for distribution in the US by Masad (a company defunct for so long there is not even a trace of it in the Israel Corporations Authority’s online database). Because it’s an interesting snapshot of that time — and with all credit to writer/editors E. Ben Hanan, A. Bar-Amon and I. Taslit, photographers N. Gutman, S. Ben Yakir, A.S. Golan, Z. Zur, S. Cohen-Zedek, Z. Sherf and S. Levidon and graphic designers A. Frank and T. Carmon — we present a few scanned pages from the book.
