19 – Tatulinski’s Travel to Palestine



One year after the holidays at the Baltic Sea in 1934, which he didn’t enjoy, Abram Melamedzon, called by her daughter Tatulinski, decided to go for holiday to the warm Mediterranean Sea, to Palestine. It was also the opportunity for him to look around the country in which European Jews had settled. He became a Zionist in Russian times. He even bought then, together with his brother, a piece of land in Haifa, but the title deed got lost during the escape from Russia. Owing to this travel and the decisions Fira’s father made after it, the Melamedzon family avoided the horror of occupation in Poland a few years later. We publish here two of several saved photographs of that travel.
