The Planes of Spain Fall Mainly in the Drain: the American Origin of the Israeli Air Force in 1948
A talk by Ralph Lowenstein

Judaica Suite, Smathers Library 2nd floor
May 12, 2015, 5.30 p.m.

Ralph Lowenstein, dean emeritus of the College of Journalism, University of Florida, will talk about the virtually unknown story of World War II aviators who raced against the clock in 1948 to prevent a second Holocaust. Lowenstein has archived the American participation in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and was an Israeli Defense Forces infantry volunteer. In 2011, he received the Emma Lazarus Statue of Liberty Award from the American Jewish Historical Society. The award is the society’s highest honor and is presented to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to strengthening the American Jewish community.

Sponsored by the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica, George A. Smathers Libraries.
