Remembering the Yom Kippur War – כאילו לא היתה מלחמה


By Gideon

Many years passed since that awful day in October 1973 when that terrible war begun, but the Yom Kippur war  is still with us. For the people who lived through it the war will never be forgotten. It is a constant reminder that nothing should be taken for granted and that the survival of the State of Israel is dependent on having a strong army – nothing really changed from biblical times when one small Jewish nation was surrounded by enemies.

The following is a four part series about the war as told by the people who were there. It was produced by the Israeli TV channel Artuz 2 in 2003.
