Former ambassador, writer: Avi Primor
AVI PRIMOR was born in 1935 in Palestine under British mandate.
By vocation, and because he wanted to bring Israel out of its isolation, he chose the career of diplomat. Appointed ambassador, successively of the European Union and then of Germany, he militated for Peace while claiming to be a Zionist. When he left diplomacy, he was appointed vice-president of Tel Aviv University until 2004.
His latest book, written in French, “that it is sweet and beautiful to die for your country”, is a vibrant testimony, through the itinerary of two Jewish soldiers, one French and the other German, during the First World War.
