Clarification: Secret memorial story
GLILOT JUNCTION, Israel — In a July 13 story, The Associated Press described Shulamit Kishak-Cohen, who helped smuggle Jews to Israel from Lebanon in the 1950s and was awarded a rare citation, as having carried on a romantic liaison with a French intelligence agent.
The story should have attributed the information to a book about Kishak-Cohen, “Shula: Code Name The Pearl.” Her family says the assertion is entirely false and sullies her reputation.
