This is a page from my grandmother's autograph book - her name was Roza/Shoshana Simanovska. I know that it is a sketch of Joseph Trumpeldor. I would really appreciate a translation of the text. Also, do you, perhaps, recognise the source of the image that it was copied from? A book? A postcard?

"It is nothing to die for your country!"




10/19/2017 6:05 PM Looks like she might have done the drawing. Signature at bottom right might be Shoshana in Hebrew and below it, it looks like Eilat! The date is 2 October 1933.

I might translate the closing line as,

"It doesn't matter, It's worth dying for our homeland!"
