A special memorial exhibition marking the 25th anniversary of the death of the Zionist Revisionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky opened today at the Herzl Institute. The exhibition will run until June 30.

Portraits, sculptures, books, pamphlets, recordings and other material pertaining to the life of the late Zionist leader are being displayed along with a film presentation of the ceremonies in New York, Paris and Jerusalem last year on the occasion of the transfer of Jabotinsky’s remains from New York to Israel for re-burial.

The exhibition is being sponsored by the Herzl Institute in cooperation with the Brit Trumpeldor, the United Zionist Revisionists of America, the Jabotinsky Institute of Tel Aviv and other Revisionist groups. Dr. Joseph Schechtman, chairman of the Zionist Revisionists of America and author of two biographies of Jabotinsky, is the director of the exhibit.
