Intrepid journalist who survived bombing, interviewed Ben-Gurion, dies at 94

Moshe Marlin Levin, one of the last surviving Jerusalem Post staffers who was working when the paper’s offices were blown up in February 1948, died over the weekend.

The 94-year-old Levin, a lifetime journalist who worked for the Post, the TIME LIFE company and ABC TV over a six-decade career, grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Three years into a journalism degree at Temple University in Philadelphia, he was drafted into the US Army and served on Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s staff at the advance communications headquarters in Versailles as a cryptographer. After the war, he completed his degree, married Betty Schoffman, and six weeks after their wedding in 1947, immigrated to Palestine.
