Robert Capa photograph of 3 soldiers loading a truck in Tel Aviv

Object | Accession Number: 2005.594.3

Photographic print by Robert Capa taken in Tel Aviv in July 1948 of Israeli soldiers on a street corner. It was published as part of a photojournalistic essay: ‘‘Israel’s First Year’’, published in August 1948 in the London magazine, Illustrated. The caption on the reverse of this photograph does not reflect the scene described in the caption; it is possible that it was cropped or that the caption refers to another photograph used in the article. There was an article by this title using Capa photographs, published in Life magazine in July: ‘‘Jew Fights Jew in Israel: photographer records ill-fated Irgun landing."
