To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Yitzhak Shamir, Israel's seventh prime minister, the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem is hosting a unique exhibit providing a rare look at Shamir's life from his personal relics - Arutz Sheva showed up to learn more.
Herzl Makov, head of the Begin Center, explained how the former prime minister's private archives were transferred by his family to the center after his death in 2012.
It includes rare letters and other items describing his life in various periods, including his time in the underground during the British Mandate, his time in the Mossad, and later in politics.
Shamir served as prime minister for the Likud party from 1983 to 1992, a period that saw a long terror war that came to be known as the first intifada, and which led up to the 1994 Oslo Accords.
According to Makov, the former prime minister was a "modest person who felt his duty was to serve his country and his people."
