Education_pillar_iconAbout the Witnesses in Uniform Program

Each year, there are fewer Holocaust survivors living to share their stories. FIDF’s Witnesses in Uniform program offers soldiers a first-hand look at the almost unfathomable horrors of the Holocaust, leading to a new, profound understanding of their Jewish identity and heritage. Witnesses in Uniform visits the sites of death camps in Poland with delegations comprised of career officers and commanders, reserve soldiers, family members of fallen soldiers and Holocaust survivors. The journey invariably strengthens their resolve to persevere, to protect their nation, and to proclaim, “Never Again.” 


“We walked proudly on Polish soil with an Israeli flag and with a sense of victory and said, ‘We are here’.”

From Captain Ofir’s Diary, Golani Brigade, Witnesses in Uniform Participant
