Exclusive interview with the only orphaned survivor of the Kfar Etzion Massacre of 1948. 

Retired IDF Air Force Col. Yossi Ron joins me and tells the story of how both his parents were brutally killed by the Arabs in 1948, how he survived, and about the complete destruction of Kibbutz Kfar Etzion (south of Jerusalem). Today, Kfar Etzion is again re-populated and rebuilt by Jews, and a new Museum and visitor center is being built to showcase the amazing bravery and sacrifice of its residents fighting to save the Jews under Arab attack.

Also, see the new visitor's center museum they are now building at Kfar Etzion.  Be part of this project, click here and watch the short video.
