Life Magazine photos of Israel 1948-67 Part 4: The Life and death of photographer Paul Schutzer

This is the fourth and final installment in the collection of Life Magazine photographs of Israel 1948-67 published by Ben Atlas. They are pictures taken by Paul Schutzer, a Life Magazine photographer. Ben explains what happened to him:
Lenny wrote that Paul Schutzer “was embedded with an Israeli armored column moving into Gaza in the 1967 war. His half-track took a direct hit”. They found this film roll in the camera next to Paul Schutzer’s body. I went back to the archive and this is the last roll:
Here's a picture from the roll with Ben's caption:

You can see from the roll that Paul was taking several photos of this moving tank and then the tank takes a direct hit. Next is the direct hit on Paul Schutzer’s track and the three last photos by Paul Schutzer.

You can see the rest of the photos here.

I actually found a copy of Life Magazine with the Article in a used book store many years ago.

It was a sepcial edition, covering the entire 6 day war.

It's stashed away with other memorabilia, but if you are ever down in the Negev & have a little time I'll pull it out and show you.
