Meir was born on October 9,1922 in Danzig, to Dina and Avraham, who had come from Poland for professional training, before going to Eretz Yisrael. His father made aliya on his own in 1925, to establish himself economically before bringing the family. In 1928 Meir’s mother died, and his father brought Meir to Eretz Yisrael with a Certificate, accompanied by a family of Jewish immigrants. His father remarried and helped set up the Naharayim‘ Hydro-Electric Plant’, and later the Dead Sea Potash Factory. The family lived in Jerusalem and had a secular lifestyle. The children received a Zionist education, and their father’s ideal that emphasized the merit of Work, as a means to fulfill the Zionist dream. Meir studied at the ‘Tahkemoni’ School and the Hebrew High-School in Jerusalem. He was a member of ‘Mahanot-Olim’, and the United Youth Movement and linked to the founding group of ‘Beit-Ha’arava’, which he eventually left. In 1938, at 16, he left High-School, and falsifying his date-of- birth, joined the Jewish Settlement Police force. When WWII broke out, Meir joined the British Army and served six years with the Maintenance Unit in Alexandria, initially in the Infantry, later the Navy. During that time he began looking for ways to contact the underground, and was recruited to Lehi. He fulfilled various functions in Tel-Aviv, including Operations branch. While laying explosives on the railway tracks to Jerusalem, he was captured and sentenced to 15 years. On February 20,1948, he escaped from Jerusalem Prison with 11 other Lehi and Etzel fighters, through a tunnel they had dug, linking them to the sewage system. He joined Lehi in Jerusalem and participated in the conquest of Deir-Yassin and in the breakthrough to the Old City. He later joined the IDF. While undergoing officers training he was injured, thus putting an end to his hopes of becoming a career soldier.
Meir married Ofra Mizrahi, a fellow Lehi member, in 1951. They had three children and have eight grandchildren. Until 1969 the family lived in Haifa and Meir worked in the Dagon granaries. In 1969 he moved to Beersheba and worked in the Ministry of Interior. He was active in the Association for Citizens’ Rights, opposed discrimination but nonetheless believed in Jewish sovereignty over all of Greater Israel. Meir passed away on September 19,1978 and was buried in the Lehi section of Holon cemetery.
