How do we reconcile and integrate a man of two worlds – personal and professional? The professional side witnessed the history of Israel from pre-state to modern times. A face that saw Israel’s emergence into statehood and to her current powerhouse status on the world stage. To have had personal relationships with the movers and shakers of Israel’s political and cultural society over 70 years. To have reported on the activities of the state through wartime and peacetime and all in between. To have been personally part of the violence of the state. To have recreated a personal life with four generations of his lineage to defy the decree of annihilation of the Holocaust. This was the life and legacy of Alexander Zvielli.
