Mazay, Isaiah (Yishai)
Son of-Arma-Yosefa and Moshe-Miklos was born in 1926 in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, to a working family, who had been suffering since childhood, and had already begun to live a difficult life before the end of World War II. He was deported to concentration camps in Germany, but managed to overcome all the hardships and return home to Hungary, and he did not find his family, and he sought his way to the Zionist movement and joined the Dror youth movement during the Nazi pogrom in Hungary. “Was educated in this movement and immigrated with his friends on the ship” Exodus. ” The ship was captured by the British and Isaiah and his friends passed through Haifa through France to Germany, Italy and Cyprus until he immigrated to Israel as a member of the “Revolution” group. In Israel he joined the “Dror” group in the “Dor Chadash” training group in Ein Harod. In the kibbutz, he adapted to every job in the kibbutz and found satisfaction there. He felt a mental need to enlist immediately in the army to find a mental outlet for all that had happened to him in Germany, Hungary, and wandering, although his friends thought he had to wait until he had practiced. He learned the Hebrew language with difficulty and thought that the army would be able to purchase it more easily – and that was another motive for his enlistment. He enlisted and served in the Golani Brigade. Yeshayahu hoped to bring his mother to Israel at the end of the war and dreamed of immigrating with his group to settle – but did not win. After the withdrawal from Jenin, the line reached the first truce in the ridge north of Jenin. With the resumption of fighting at the end of the first truce, the Iraqis aggressively attacked this line. In view of the enemy’s superiority, our forces had to retreat and set up a new line on the Gilboa ridge. Yeshayahu was mortally wounded by a group of bullets on Tuesday, July 10, 1948, between Mazar and Zandela, and died of his wounds On August 30, 1950, he was laid to rest at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.
