Harry Fisher

FISHER-Harry, 92, soldier, pacifist, writer, activist, died March 22, after participating in a demonstration against the war on Iraq. He grew up in the Hebrew National Orphan Home, became a labor organizer, fought fascism in Spain with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, and served as a B-26 turret gunner in World War II. Married to Ruth Goldstein in 1939, they shared an office, a daily walk to work, and a passion for life until her death in 1993. In 1998 Harry's Spanish Civil War memoir, ``Comrades,'' was published in the U.S. and subsequently in Germany and Spain, leading to speaking tours around the world. Just before his death, Harry finished his second book, ``Legacy.'' He is survived by his son and daughter, John and Wendy; their spouses, Dena and Geoffrey; grandchildren, Paul, Emilia, and Rachel, as well as the Becker, Grad, Henley, Weisman, and Goldstein families. Harry Fisher is also survived by an ever-growing number of antiwar comrades, and will be sorely missed by his family and the great many people he touched in his short 92 years.
