Personal letter correspondence between friends in Palestine [Dalia and Eli] in 1947-1949, written on the background of the War of Independence in a number of locations [Chatzerim, Haifa, Tel Yosef].

Most of the letters relate to their relationship, but here and there there are references to the war in the background, the tension, internment camp in Cyprus, time spent in the bunker and more. Interestingly, for a long time, the boyfriend thought that his girlfriend had similar feelings for him, but at the end it becomes clear that she is not interested in him. Some of the letters were sent to the girl from her mother, and are not arranged in chronological order.

About 100 pages. Crowded, clear and legible. Varying sizes and conditions. Overall fine condition.

* Notebook of illustrated poems and idioms, written between 1944-1946 and gifted to a girl named Rochel Brand from the friends in her class. Sentences, songs, and idoms written personally to Rochel by the friends in her class. They indicate the tension and hope that accompanied the girls during these critical years. For example: "If you will be old in your life, see and remember that during the days of war you lived and alot of explosions you cried...." Or "look forward to the morrow when we will all be redeemed here in Eretz Yisrael, it will all be ours...," "retain the flag and remember me forever..." Includes a number of original idioms and poems from other friends. Hard cover with gilt embossing of the Tel Aviv port. 31 written pages, the other leaves are blank. Fine condition.
