What's in an Address.

The Munzinger Archive is Germany's authoritative source for biographical information about figures of contemporary history.

when the Israeli helicopters approached on that tragic day in April, 2004 - because he was used to Israeli aircraft bringing fan mail and requests for autographs to his hiding place. One thing is definitely true: Israel really took care of him.
