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.
