For Vengeance Is Mine

Translation / Interpretation / Caption Text

Hebrew translation: ( From the "Blue and White In Color: Visual Images of Zionism 1897 - 1947" catalog)

A poster of the Labor Federation (Histadrut) dated May 1, 1945, shows soldiers attacking under the flag of the Jewish Brigade, but the caption "For Vengeance Is Mine" (Deutronomy 32: 35) is mainly wishful thinking. The Brigade was not able to wreak vengeance on the Nazis for the extermination of the Jews, but the very presence of Jewish troops fighting under a Zionist flag constituted some kind of revenge" P. 115
