Dr. Avraham Albert Ticho was a Viennese-trained ophthalmologist who immigrated to Ottoman-ruled Jerusalem in 1912. There he married his cousin, the artist Anna Ticho, and together they made their mark on the history of the Land of Israel. In Days of Ticho, the Tichos' story is told in all its fascinating detail. Their personal history is presented against the backdrop of a variety of historical perspectives histories of medicine, art, civilian institutions, governments, and war; the struggles and growth of the Yishuv, the Jewish community in Palestine; and the conflicts that arose between Jews and their Arab neighbors. Among the stories in this book are Dr. Ticho's supervision of the first Hadassah nurses in Palestine and the early years of Hadassah Hospital, as well as the near-fatal stabbing of Dr. Ticho by an Arab would-be assassin in November 1929, during the murderous riots that took place throughout Palestine. Those riots were an important turning point in Jewish-Arab relations, the harbinger of problems that remain the focus of world attention until today. The Ticho House in Jerusalem was dedicated in May 1984 as a downtown annex of the Israel Museum, and it welcomes thousands of visitors every year. This book further contributes to the Tichos' legacy while advancing an understanding of their times and ours.

Review:

"a meticulous and fascinating 473-page, hardcover English-language volume on the long medical career in Jerusalem of Dr. Ticho"; "The author, who specializes in oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery, seems to have read decades worth of Hebrew newspapers like Ben-Yehuda's Ha Or, Havatzelet and Doar Ha Yom and the English-language Palestine Post. He also uses a cornucopia of other sources, listed in more than 70 pages of amazingly detailed notes. He also provides a huge list of periodicals, books, catalogues, encyclopedias, books and articles in a 40-page bibliography."; "He managed to dig up the obscure fact that Anna graduated from the Austrian art school that rejected would-be artist Adolph Hitler!"; --Judy Siegel-Itzkovich, The Jerusalem Post s Health and Science Editor

David M. Reifler, an ophthalmologist from Michigan State University, tells the story of Dr. Avraham Albert Ticho (1883-1960), a Jewish ophthalmologist from Boskovice, Moravia, ... (who) played a major role in the development of ophthalmology in particular and medicine in general in the region.

While most of the book focuses on him, it also deals with his cousin who became his wife, Anna Ticho, a famous artist... The book details his life in Ottoman Palestine and under the British Mandatory rule there. It covers not only the lives of the Tichos as individuals, but also the development of medicine in Palestine focusing on Ticho's contributions in medicine in general and ophthalmology in particular.

Ticho was known for his meticulous treatment of his patients, many of them Arabs, and providing quality treatment regardless of the patients ability to pay.

This book is an important contribution on the life of Dr. Ticho and his role in advancing medicine in Palestine... --Rachel Simon, Sept/Oct AJL Reviews
