J. Wandres will discuss the action-packed life and career of Lt. Paul N. Shulman, the U.S. Naval Academy graduate who became Israel’s “Volunteer Admiral.” After World War II, Shulman helped acquire vessels for the clandestine immigration sealift of Holocaust survivors to Palestine, then volunteered to set up a naval academy for Israel’s new navy and further distinguished himself during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. J. Wandres, an associate with the Center for World War II History and Conflict Resolution, lives in New Jersey.
Following J. Wandres’ presentation, Captain Yoram Laks, the Naval Attaché of the Israeli Embassy, will speak about the Israeli Navy today. Capt. Laks is also the Military advisor to the Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations.
