Download PDF for this date

The 16th anniversary of the death of Vladimir Jabotinsky, founder and leader of the Zionists-Revisionists Party and one of the outstanding figures in history of the Zionist movement, was observed here today at his grave in New Montefiore Cemetery, Pinelawn, L.T.

A procession of cars and buses, arranged by the United Zionists-Revisionists of America, left for the grave where services were conducted by a number of rabbis, and a military salute was given by members of B’rith Trumpeldor, the youth organization formed by Mr. Jabotinsky. The right-wing leader died in New York City in July 1940, while on a visit to the United States.

Founder of the Jewish Legion, in World War I, Mr. Jabotinsky left the World Zionist Organization in 1935 and formed the Revisionist Party to press for more aggressive action against the British in Palestine and for the establishment of a Jewish State. Mr. Jabotinsky was also the author of a number of novels and was known as an excellent writer in may languages.
