Menachem Begin addresses an audience at a memorial evening to Abraham Stern and to all the heroes of Lechi. He praises the great heroism instilled in these “rebels.” He mentions Abraham Stern, David Raziel, Meir Feinstein, and Moshe Barazani.
On the 20th anniversary of the Irgun’s declaration of war against the British in Palestine, Begin spoke at a celebration in Tel Aviv. In the speech, Begin recounts the difficulty of the struggle for liberation, compares the Irgun to other national liberation movements, and notes that their struggle was merely the continuation of the Bar Kochba revolt.
Begin commemorates Ze’ev Jabotinsky. He speaks about how Jabotinsky predicted what would happen during the Holocaust and how many did not listen to him. Begin explains the personality of Jabotinsky, and that he compares to Mazzini, Garibaldi, and Lincoln. He counter argues the claim that Jobtinsky was a tragic personality. He concludes that Jabotinsky continues to live not only through his writings, but also through his pupils.
