Underground - British Mandate, Etzel
To commemorate Joseph Leizerowitz, the Jewish Herald published an excerpt from Begin's book "Revolt." This excerpt is a story of the British army in Palestine mistaking Leizerowitz as Begin. Begin shares that Leizerowitz was relieved that they thought he was Begin, and not himself. It would have been more dangerous if they knew Leizerowitz's real identity because he was, according to Begin, "one of our best Information Officers." After a full day of interrogation and arguing he was the person on the fake identity card, named 'Aharon,', they let him go and he continued to serve Etzel.
