SIMON, JAAKOW. - Lastträger Bin Ich.

Berlin, Kedem 1936. Octavo publisher's cloth backed colour illustrated boards; 92pp, b/w illustrations. Some spotting or browning but pretty good. Bookseller's label of Berlin publishers and sellers Poppelauer. Some of Poppelauer's heirs managed to escape in 1938 while others died in the camps. And with a discrete stamp on the back of the title showing it was part of the keen Zionist Rabbi Falk's collection that went to Sydney's Great Synagogue - now dispersed. ¶ A collection of children's stories about the new Palestine for up and coming young German Zionists. As an illiterate I'm baffled by the ragged young porter inspiring any child to move to Palestine but ... what do I know? Maybe it looked pretty good to a Jewish kid in Berlin in 1936. Simon may be better known as Ja'akow Shimoni, a bigwig in Israeli foreign affairs in the early years of the state but is nowhere near as well known as Ya'akow Shimoni, the strident Zionist rapper.
