About 1900 news reports sent by journalist Zvi (Hazy) Zinder from Palestine, the Middle East and World War II fronts, to newspaper editorials and press agencies. Palestine, Libya, Syria, Paris, China, India and other places (most of them from Palestine), ca. late 1930s to mid-1940s. English and some Hebrew. Zvi Hazy Zinder (1909-1991), journalist and radio reporter, was born in the United States. He traveled to Palestine in 1937 and served as a reporter for the newspapers Time-Life, Palestine Post, AP News Agency and other papers. When the war broke out he was sent by Time-Life to cover the war in North Africa, the West European front and the Far East and when the State of Israel was established he became an Israeli journalist and was appointed as director of "Kol Israel". This archive includes reportages and news items written by Zinder in the 1930s and 1940s (most of them typewritten; some typewritten on "Press Telegram" forms). Among the items: hundreds of news items from Palestine (terror attacks, undergrounds operations, the Great Arab Revolt, Peel Commission, "Aliya" certificates, criminal acts and more); hundreds of articles and news items about the war in North Africa (El-Alamein battle, occupation of Tripoli, occupation of Sirte (Libya), testimonies of soldiers and military pilots, tanks and weapons, attitudes of Arab leaders and more); news from the western European front (crossing the Rhine river, occupation of German towns, arrival in Berlin and post-war Europe); articles and material about Farouk I King of Egypt; and more. The archive is arranged in cardboard folders, titled and dated by hand. Enclosed: about 250 letters (most of them typewritten) exchanged between Zinder and press entities and personalities; about 50 articles which Zinder prepared when he studied in Northwestern University; tens of personal documents and items; and eight photographs (two by Alfred Bernheim and one by Zvi Oron [Oroshkes]). Size and condition vary. Good overall condition. Stains and creases, filing holes and defects (mostly slight). About 150 items in fair-poor condition, with torn margins, stained and falling apart.
