Iain Holland  I was a boyhood friend of Abe, during the 60s, until we were about 21. He went to Israel and I went travelling. Spent a large of my youth with Abe, his father, Chaim and mother Jaffa. Chaim and Jaffa went to Israel, Abe married a South African lady and went to Cape Town to live, where he reared his family. He passed away in June 2008. I had met up with him a few years previously, and also in Sydney, Australia at the marriage of his eldest daughter. I still have a wood etching that Chaim gave me as a teenager. Chaim had done many of these, the one that I remember most was of gas chambers. Very poignant.
