Ben-Avraham (Malter), Israel-Noah


Son of Leah and Avraham, was born on March 13, 1925 in Debrecen, Hungary. He was educated in a patriotic-Hungarian atmosphere and as a child wrote songs of love for a homeland that he thought was his own. By the time he finished fourth grade in high school, he began to feel the rise of anti-Semitism, stopped fattening himself in Hungarian culture and studied carpentry as an apprentice for three years until he was legally authorized to do so. During the Second World War, his father was taken to a labor battalion on the Russian front and perished there. During the deportations, the family was taken to Austria and survived. After the war they returned to Debrecen and found their home destroyed. Israel Noah worked there for another year by profession and later went with his mother on the “escape route” to Italy. In the camps in Italy he began to study the history of Israel and to take an interest in the problems that preoccupy the young people of Israel with their organizations and parties. He boarded the ship Bracha Fuld, who was caught and deported to Cyprus. Where he continued to study Hebrew, the Bible, etc., and in 1947 he was released, immigrated to Israel and worked in his profession. 1948 he was drafted into the IDF and participated in various battles, and in the Battle of Manara he fell on the 20th of Tishrei 5709 (October 23, 1948.) On the day of the 29th of Tishrei 5709 (1/11/1948) and was laid to rest at the military cemetery in Rosh Pina.
