JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Livia ROKACH - Looking for her Relatives #general

I have in my possession three original photos of Livia ROKACH that I would
like to pass on to her family.

Livia Rokach was the daughter of Esther (daughter of Chaya and Yeshayahu
EPSTEIN) and Israel ROKACH (son of Rachel and Shimon). Her father Israel
ROKACH was Mayor of Tel Aviv >from 1936 - 1952 and Minister of Interior under
Prime Minister Moshe Sharett. She was a journalist and a reporter for Israel
Radio, in Italy.

In the early 1980s, Livia Rokach translated excerpts >from Moshe Sharett's
diary and inserted them into her book: "Israel's Sacred Terrorism ". This
was an extremely provocative book which has been widely used as propaganda
by Palestinian activists. Livia Rokach was found dead in her Rome hotel room
in the 1980's.

If you are a family member of Livia Rokach and are interested in the photos,
please write to me.
