An outpouring of grief by a father for his son. Ronnie was killed in active service with Zahal in June 1967. Though never explicity stated, it is possible to infer from the dates that he was killed during Israel's Six Day War. The brief poems or passages chronicle the loss from shortly after Ronnie's death at the age of 19 until what would have been his 23rd birthday. Only one other copy located in OCLC (Jewish National Library).

Price: $150.00
