It is vital that we not only remember the victims of the Shoah and honor the survivors but continue to educate present and future generations via discussions, print and film about the historical truth to counteract antisemitism, denial and revisionism.

The Chaim Herzog Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II
The Association for the Establishment of the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II, is building the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II, in order to tell the important and neglected chapter in the history of Jewish people, the story of the heroism alongside the Holocaust. It will also show the contribution of Jewish soldiers to the defeat of the Nazi regime and its threat to the very existence of the Jewish people.
The museum will be named after the late Haim Herzog, the sixth president of the State of Israel.
The museum will honor the 1,500,000 Jewish men and women who were recruited into, or volunteered for the armed forces of the Allies, the Partisans and the resistance movements, as well as perpetuating the memory of the 250,000 Jewish soldiers who gave their lives during the War.
The museum is built in Latrun, on the main road between Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem., It will be a ‘state-of-the-art’ facility, a unique site of its kind in the world, a magnet for visitors and researchers and features an exhibition center that will tell the story of the Jewish fighter in World War II, a study, research and information center, with an extensive archive.
Most people have never heard of the 20,000-30,000 Jews who fought back against the Nazis as Jewish partisans. These Jews were responsible for blowing up thousands of armored convoys and thwarting the Nazi war machine in countless ways, including rescuing people from the ghettos, procuring food and medicine, tending to wounded soldiers, sabotaging German communications and supply lines, punishing collaborators, sheltering civilians and saving thousands of Jewish lives. Learning about who these partisans were and what they accomplished has the power to transform people’s perception of the Jewish experience during the Holocaust.
The Partisans’ Panorama pays tribute to the Jewish fighters who joined the partisans during the Holocaust. The sculpture at its center is entitled “For is the tree of the field man” (Deut. 20:19). The sculptor, Zadok Ben-David, chose the tree as a symbol of the partisan fighter, whose life depended on the forest and its trees as a place to hide. On a nearby stone the words of the partisans’ anthem are engraved in Hebrew, Yiddish and English.
