The biography of the legendary
Israeli leader Menachem Begin
(1913 - 1992) by famous writer
and journalist Mark Zaichik
is being published for the first
time in Russia.
It is the second book in the NO
TO EXTREMISM: ANTI-FASCIST LIBRARY published by The
Michael Cherney Foundation.
Menachem Begin, the Peace Nobel Prize winner
and Israel's Prime Minister in 1977-1983, took part in most
important events of the last century and solved cardinal problems
of his country and his people. He lived a unique life, and
his personality deserves to be known by the future generations
both in Israel and the world over. He was a man who knew victories
and errors, wise decisions and disappointments, but he firmly
believed in his objective and thus was able to assume responsibility
for historical decisions. This is why Begin, one of the major
politicians of the 20th century, will go down in history as
a statesman on the world scale.
