This three-part series focuses on the life of Berthe Badehi, a remarkable woman who survived the Holocaust and went on to immigrate to Israel and build a life here. Since 1956, Berthe has lived in Israel and proudly raised her family here. Berthe has lived through many struggles and losses, yet she still bravely shares her story with the world.
Every year, on Israeli Memorial Day, Berthe remembers her grandson, Lt. Gil z”l, who was a platoon commander in the IDF Armored Corps. Gil was killed in action in 2002 during an IDF operation in western Ramallah. After being critically wounded by terrorist gunfire, he was taken to a hospital in order to receive medical treatment, where he later passed away.
