Ze’ev Jabotinsky: A story of a Leader

In a historic film recorded in Paris in 1934, just one year after the Nazis’ rise to power, Ze’ev Jabotinsky exhorted Europe’s Jews to urgently come to Eretz Yisrael. The film, has been preserved at the Jabotinsky Institute in Tel Aviv, the public archives that perpetuates the legacy of Betar’s founder and head. The Jabotinsky Institute houses priceless documents, posters, audio-visual materials, and other items relating to the Revisionist movement and its offshoots. The Institute also conducts research and publishes books and various publications. Its reading room and adjacent library and museum are open to the public. In conjuction with the Government of Israel, Keren Hayesod is supporting the project to expand the Jabotinsky Institute building and preserve the heritage of this prophetic leader.

“This is a story about people who risked their lives and their children’s lives to help the Jews, their neighbours, and this is also an untold story because this story was never told, and very many similar stories have never been told in the media and they are not known not only in the Jewish community but also in the Polish community. In Poland they are also unknown.”

German military police burned 34 Poles alive for hiding the Jewish – families of Kowalski, Obuchiewicz, Skoczylas, and two families of Kosior, together with a few Jews hidden by them, among whom were Elka Cukier and Berek Pineches.

Around 500 thousand to 1 million Poles risked their lives to save their neighbours – the Polish Jews.
