More About this Item


Description

BEGIN, MENACHEM. (1913-1992). Nobel Prize-winning Israeli prime minister. Book Signed. (“M. Begin”). [32pp.]. 4to. (Washington, D.C., April 1979). A pamphlet published by the Israeli Embassy in Washington entitled Documents Pertaining to the Conclusion of Peace, signed by Begin in the lower right corner of the front cover. The pamphlet include sections about the Camp David Accords, the peace treaty with Egypt and the addresses delivered at the peace signing ceremony on the White House lawn on March 26, 1979.

A militant Russian Zionist, Begin survived torture in Vilnius’ Lukiškės Prison and enforced labor in a Russian gulag, eventually settling in the British Mandate of Palestine, where he became a prominent leader in the Jewish uprising to force a British withdrawal from the region. After Israel’s founding, Begin founded the political Herut and, later, became an outspoken and indefatigable member of the Likud opposition party in the Knesset, becoming prime minister in 1977.

Begin is best remembered for his role in negotiating the Camp David Accords with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. From September 17-29, 1978, the two leaders held intense negotiations moderated by American president Jimmy Carter at Maryland’s presidential retreat, Camp David. The result was the creation of two documents: A Framework for Peace in the Middle East and A Framework for the Conclusion of a Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel. In recognition of their efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East, Begin and Sadat shared the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize. Begin remained prime minister until 1983 when he was succeeded by Yitzhak Rabin. Sadat and ten others were assassinated by members of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad in October 1981.

In excellent condition. [indexhistory] [indexJudaica]
