David Raziel and Chess

Visiting Tel Aviv, we have gone to the Eztel museum. 'Etzel' (אצ"ל) is the Hebrew acronym of Irgun Tzvai-Leumi -- literally, the 'National Military Organization', or just (the) 'Irgun' (organization) in English.

We do not, in this blog, deal with politics, and we shall say no more about the Irgun as a political or military organization. What is relevant to this blog, however, is that the museum has the personal effects of many of its prominent leaders.

Inter alia, it has those of David Raziel, which include -- above -- a miniature chess set; click on the image for a larger one.
