one of the most אינערעסאנט ברעקעלע of this piece is: that the Brisker Ruv thought about leaving the Medinah in '48.That the ציונים were חשוד על רציחה , that didn't seem to scare him , but the אראבער...To France of all places!! Didnt he spend some time in Switzerland later on?
Switzerland was for צרכי רפואה - almost every year, I think, until his passing

In Brisk it is told over that the Rov felt it was a sufficient sofek pikuach nefesh which obligated one to leave the country; not because he was "afraid".[There is famous testimony that the Rov sat calmly in a basement in Warsaw during WWII with bombs falling all around him, and he was not "afraid".] Following in his footsteps, IIRC his SIL r Yankel Schiff shlita went to Switzerland for a while during the Yom Kippur War.
I once saw in a zionist book, maybe r nuria, that the brisker rav sent his sons to hear שירת הים by r harlop. I personally asked rav meir about this...he said it wasn't so. Yedid nafshi the admor of radzin, rav moshe leiner honoured rav meir זצ״ל as sandic for one of his sons.
