Plaut, Chaim (Manfred)


Son of Mordechai and Tirza. Born on 21.11.1930 in Kirschen, Germany, immigrated to Israel in 1937. Studied at a high school in Haifa and when he reached the age of 17, his parents went with their family to the United States. This step of his parents influenced him severely, since he loved the country and was a member of the Bnei Akiva youth movement. But without any other choice he continued his high school studies there until he completed them in a vocational school, where he specialized in mechanics – his profession afterwards. However, during his entire exile he could not rest, and a few years later he returned to Israel to the dismay of his parents. Upon his arrival he joined the army (August 1949). In April 1951 he asked for a two-month leave to visit his parents. The vacation was approved for him, but a few days before his departure, he gave up his leave to finish the semi-annual officers’ course. He successfully passed the course and was certified as an officer. At the end of the compulsory service he applied for permanent army service. On September 19, 1951, he died and was put to rest at the military cemetery in Kfar Warburg.
