VALE ABRAHAM AMATERSTEIN

It is with much sorrow that we report that that Abe - one of the New
International Bookshop's keenest supporters - is no longer with us. He
died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday morning (3/11/2002).

Abe became a Communist in fascist Poland in the 1930s. He escaped to the
Soviet Union but lost most of his immediate family to the Nazis. During
World War II, he served as a war correspondent and was wounded in the
defence of Stalingrad. He emigrated to Australia, where he joined the
Communist Party of Australia, and remained a committed socialist to the
end of his life.

In the last couple of years, Abe spent as much time as he could in and
around the shop. All of us here came to greatly appreciate him, his work
and his conversation. One of our most reliable volunteers, he took a
keen interest in books, political debates and struggles on the Left
right up to his death. Despite belonging to a pre-digital generation, he
struggled manfully with the bookshop computer and became something of an
expert coffee maker.

Abe was all heart, and he will be missed. There will be a memorial
function for all those who knew Abe, knew his work or were touched by
his life.
