Politician, Deceased Person

1905 – 1973


Who was Moshe Flimann?

Moshe Flimann served as the mayor of Haifa from 1969 to 1973.

Flimann was born in 1905 in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. He was a member of a Zionist youth movement, and joined the "Pioneer" movement. He was imprisoned by the Russian authorities because of his Zionist activities, but was released a short time after his arrest.

After completing high school, he went to Moscow to study electrical engineering. In 1929 he was imprisoned because of his continued participation in Zionist organizations, and was sent to Siberia to serve a three-year sentence. However, in 1930, his sentence was shortened; he was banished from the U.S.S.R. and then emigrated to Palestine.

After emigrating to Palestine, he worked in the "Stein" factory in Yafo, and subsequently as an electrician, until he found work as a teacher of physics and math in Tel Aviv. He only taught for a short time, however, as he soon began working as an electrician in a quarry in Atlit. In 1932, he was accepted to work for the Israel Electric Corporation. By 1957, he had been promoted to the manager of the national grid, and was elected to the board of the company as a representative of the workers.
