Machal refers to the group of overseas volunteers who fought alongside Israeli forces during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. Some 4,000 volunteers, mostly Jews but also non-Jews, arrived from all over the world. Machal is an acronym of מתנדבי חוץ לארץ (Mitnadvei Hutz LaAretz, “volunteers from abroad”).

Gérard Philipe (1922-1959) – Un Prince en Avignon


„Il faut vieillir, ou mourir jeune.“ Philibert-Joseph Roux

Bonheur suranné à la (re)découverte de la beauté immaculée du prince du théâtre français d’après-guerre, Gérard Philipe.

Paraphrasant pour ainsi dire le destin tourmenté d’Antigone, son père était collaborateur, lui résistant, Gérard Philipe, mort en pleine gloire à 37 ans, se devait d’être inhumé drapé des oripeaux du Cid, figure éponyme qu’il restera à jamais aux yeux de ses admirateurs.

Françoise Hardy, born 17 January 1944 in Paris


Françoise Madeleine Hardy is a French singer-songwriter. She made her musical debut in the early 1960s on Disques Vogue and found immediate success with her song “Tous les garçons et les filles”. As a leading figure of the yé-yé movement, Hardy became France’s most exportable female singing star, recording in various languages, appearing in several movies, touring throughout Europe, and gaining admiration from musicians such as Bob Dylan, Miles Davis and Mick Jagger. With the aid of photographer Jean-Marie Périer, Hardy also began modeling, and soon became a popular fashion icon as well. In 1981, she married her long-time partner Jacques Dutronc, who is the father of her son, Thomas Dutronc, born in 1973.
