Anecdotes
The most significant moments in my life include, meeting my wife, having our children, then
being around when our children had their children. Apart from that they were volunteering to go
to Israel with Peter Cohen and Geoff Williamson in 1967 and being arrested in the Domain in
1968 for assaulting a fully uniformed member of the Nazi Party at their rally and together with
about another 100 “shtarker” Jews giving all the other Nazis a hiding and ensuring they
would never hold a rally again in the Domain. After I was released from jail some hours
later I went to a function and it was at that function that I met my wife Estelle. But that’s
another story. 
THEN......
...AND NOW.
