Book Donation to Cayman Islands From Sir Martin’s private collection

George & Lynne Walton in the library they established on Cayman Brac, with Sir Martin’s books donated from his private collection

Letter from George Walton:
Dear Lady Gilbert,

I was very fortunate and highly privileged to have met you at the Commonwealth Jewish Council reception on 19 November 2015.

I have prayed for a long time that I would be able to secure a credible collection of books relating to Jewish history for Ha Tikvah Library.  Unknowingly, Lady Gilbert, you were the answer to my prayers.  This collection of books from your late husband, the esteemed Sir Martin Gilbert, on Jewish history, triumphs, contributions and survival is indeed a treasure.

Your very generous contribution of these books from your late husband’s private collection is indeed a valuable and cherished asset to Ha Tikvah library.  They will be permanently displayed, honored and avidly read by our small community in c  Thank you!

With Kindest regards,

George A. Walton
