Is That a Gun in Your Pocket or a Piece of Zionist History?

How a weapon given to Haganah fighter Avinoam Slutzky by the famed British general Orde Wingate wound up in a Tel Aviv apartment.

In her handsome north Tel Aviv apartment, actor Yael Amit keeps a large pistol. The weapon is not intended for self-defense, nor is it a decorative item. Amit’s pistol is a rare historical object that she inherited from her father. One day earlier this month, she brought out the pistol from an inner room and placed it on the sofa. “You can hold it,” she said.
