witnesses of history
We were there: we saw it. we felt it. we lived it.
"Memory is the mother of all wisdom."
-Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound
Israel. A tiny, embattled country in a dangerous neighborhood. A country striving to prosper in safety. A country built to be a refuge and a resource. A country for an ancient nation, a culture reborn. A country that survives in spite of all odds. In the face of war after war, threat after threat, Israel yet lives. And its people remember.
Everyone has a story. We created this page to give voice to the stories that mainstream media won't cover; the real experiences of real people in the Jewish State. They are students and teachers. They are sons and daughters. They are Jews and non-Jews. They are writers, soldiers, scholars. They are historians. They are survivors.
They witnessed history.
