Yom Hazikaron

Yosef Sarig

Do not thirst for war

“Do not thirst for war

We went to battle

We always loved our home,

The sun, a field opening in the soul

And we have now returned to you

As uncomplicated as we always were

And we have no spirit.

Can you comrades

Console the mother, in our place?”

This is what Yosef Sarig from Beit Hashita wrote to the Shturman family from Ein Harod several years before he fell in the Yom Kippur War.
