Letter from Etzel member Yitzhak Slunikio - from his detention cell in Latrun to his wife Loti Slunkyo while she was in the detention in Bethlehem - 1947


A letter in the handwriting of Etzel member Yitzhak Slunikio, who was arrested in March 1947 and imprisoned in Latrun detention camp to his wife, Loti Slunkyo, during her stay in the Bethlehem detention camp.


The first part of the letter is written in Bulgarian and continues in Hebrew. Salonkyo opens his letter: "We have not corresponded in Hebrew for a long time, and both of us are to blame for this".He tells how the book 'Monte Cristo' makes him interested in the life of the prisoner, in despair and hope. And describes his feelings of imprisonment. On the margins of the letter he added three lines that were intended for his wife's Hebrew teacher: "I am very happy that you continue to give lessons to my wife that the detention camp is apparently the first and only opportunity for my wife to learn the language ..."

Attached is the original envelope in which the letter was sent.

[1] leaf written on both sides: 24x22 cm. folding marks, very fine condition.
