Statehood for Israel...



Item # 674360

May 14, 1948

FITCHBURG SENTINEL, Massachusetts, May 14, 1948 

* Israeli Declaration of Independence
* Early, same day 1st report


The front page has an extremely historic and desirable report headed: "First Hebrew Nation Proclaimed By Jews" with the subhead: " 'State Of Israel' Becomes Reality After Midnight" and other small subheads. The ftpg. also includes photos headed: "Palestine Defender, Invader" being photos of "David Ben Gurion and King Abdullah. The text carries over a bit to page 4.
This is always one of the most sought-after Judaica-related newspapers, and which is rarely found. Great to have an issue with such a nice headline and related photos as well.
Complete in 24 pages, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
