On Holocaust Martyrs ‘and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, special remembrance activities took place on IDF army bases across Israel.

The program entitled, “Kolchem Shamati” (I Heard Your Voices), was initiated by the Education and Youth Corps of the IDF in cooperation Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, back in April 2018.

At the centre of the activity, IDF officers and commanders hosted special meetings around the “Kolachem Shamati” program, which includes recitation of stories from the Holocaust through the use of testimonies, poetry, photographs, songs and the last words of many of the victims of the Holocaust. The shared reading and engaging discourse that followed created a learning experience that was unique and meaningful for all participants.

The memories of the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered during the Holocaust by the German Nazis and their collaborators echoed across many bases of the IDF as an entire nation – and many of its future leaders – remembered the Shoah and internalized its meanings and relevance to today’s global society.
