Yitzhak Zuckerman, one of the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising 38 years ago and a founder-member of Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot, died of a heart attack Wednesday. He was 66. Better known by his underground fighter name of “Antek,” he took over command of the ghetto fighters and managed to escape with a handful of survivors to continue their fight against the Nazis in the forests.
