On May 13, 1948, Rudi receives a hollow and secret telegram to photographers on 30 Allenby St., with a personal invitation to the State of Israel proclamation at the Tel Aviv Museum Building at 16 Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv the following day.

Materials and treatment
Prints - The paper we use is Fine Art Premium photo paper. This paper has a standard mark of 70 years. The color of the print, quality and the pigment will be preserved in their original form even after decades. Note that the paper is not scratch resistant and one should try to minimize contact with it as much as possible. If you must, please do so in a clean environment and keep the photo paper away from sharp objects. Each print undergoes strict quality control before it is packaged.
Frames - The metals and wood that make up our frames are of the highest quality available. It should be taken into account that in the case of a wooden frame there may be small differences in shades since these are natural materials. Similar to prints, each frame undergoes quality control before it is packaged.
We will not be able to take responsibility for defects and scratches created after receiving the items.
