Israel’s first Minister of the Interior in 1948 was a man named Yitzhak Gruenbaum (born in Warsaw in 1879). Following his exit from politics, he undertook the editing of an Encyclopedia of the Diaspora Communities and numerous other volumes, including The Zionist Movement and its Development. He spent his later years on kibbutz Gan Shmuel, and died in 1970. (Wikipedia)
