Hello,

 

Thank you in advance for any assistance translating this note to my Saba (grandpa), from I believe Moshe Shertok, also known as Moshe Sharett.

 

Moshe Sharett, Israel’s first foreign minister (1948–56) and second prime minister, replacing David Ben-Gurion who in 1953 retired temporarily.

 

The signature resembles that of Shertok on the list of signatures from the Declaration of Independence, last name on the left, but I could be wrong: https://www.knesset.gov.il/docs/images/signatures.jpg

 

Gratitude as always to the JewishGen community for this forum and support.

You are quite right

In early Israel, and with Israeli fervor, Ben Gurion demanded that everyone should Hebrew-ise their names.
That is when Shertok became Sharet

Search & Unite attempt to help locate people who, despite the passage of so many years since World War II, may still exist "out there".
We also assist in the process of re-possession of property in the Czech Republic and Israel.
