Nathan Gurdus, well-known journalist and novelist, died here today of a heart attack. He was 63 on Oct. 10. Born in Warsaw, Mr. Gurdus came to Palestine in 1939 after a miraculous escape from Poland–on the back of a fellow journalist because he was crippled. At his death, Mr. Gurdus was director and chief correspondent of the Israel bureau of Agence France-Presse, and he earlier served with papers in London and Copenhagen. He received the Liberty Order of King Christian and the Italian Stella della Solidarita order.
