Air Force Salute to Holocaust Survivors


The Israel Air Force will open the gates of 12 of its bases, Tuesday, in a salute to 10,000 Holocaust survivors. The guests will tour the squadrons, view aircraft and meet personnel.

The first event of its kind was organized by the Air Force and the Center for Holocaust-Survivor Organizations in Israel. About 10 years ago, Air Force Commander Amir Eshel led the Flight of the Living in the skies over the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. He said the Air Force will do everything so that the horrors of the Holocaust are never repeated.
