2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the restoration of historic justice—transfer of the remains of Vladimir Jabotinsky to the land of Israel by the decision of the Israeli Government, as Jabotinsky demanded in his will. Vladimir (Ze'ev) Jabotinsky (1880-1940), founder and inspirational leader of Russian Zionism, founder of the Jewish Legion, "Irgun", and "Beitar", writer, poet, essayist, journalist, translator, and perhaps the most underrated writer of the 20-th century. For 16 years (1948-1964), the Government of Israel did not take the initiative in acting upon his last will. The controversy is still boiling: in 2008, the Israeli Minister of Education announced plans for withdrawal of the Jabotinsky name from the school programs (plans not implemented).
