Nice photo-essay, brings back memories. BTW, was looking on your site for an RSS feed, do you have one?

Thanks Scottage. I don't think I do. Could you recommend one that I can put on my site?

Blogger automatically gives you one, you can find it in the sttings tabs of your site, the specific tab being "Site Feed". You just have to turn it on, and it gives you the feed URL.

My name is Gary Groner. My family came to Canada from Hungary after WWII. I think I might somehow be related to Dov Gruner. As a child, I remember hearing about this hero and patriot of Israel in our family. Do you know anything about his genealogy or where I might find such information? Thanks.

There was a book, "The Assassination of Dov Gruner" in English I picked up in Israel many years ago. I lost my copy and would like to find a new one. Can anyone help me?

I am curious if following the comment of Gary Groner who posted a comment on December 25, 2006 he ever found out if he was related to Dov Gruner and how? My Dad was in the US Army in WW II and met Dov Gruner in Italy following the war - Dov was in the Jewish Brigade of the British Army with my Dad's brother and I have pictures of all three of them in Italy in 1945. If Gary Groner or another relative is reading this let me know

Can you give me any info on Dov Gruner from Kisvarda? I saw your post on A Simple Jew and want to know more. He is a relation of my maternal great grandfather but I can't figure out how.
