Born in Vienna in 1929
When the war of Independence broke out ‘My legs were in New York, but my head was in Israel’… She had to find a way to come back and play her part… but she didn’t have any money to pay for the transport to Israel. Looking for solutions she found one: bringing 300 pigeons to be used for communication by the Hagana from the United States to what would become Israel. But this trip was not an easy one! When she arrived with the caged birds in the airport of Rome she heard they would be stuck one whole week because of approvals and paperwork. So she had to find food on the markets and feed the birds waiting for the transit papers to be approved. “I hate pigeons, I can’t stand the damned animals anymore hahaha’.
