IDF Fighters 'Adopt'
Shoah Survivors

undreds of officers and
fighters from the elite units
of the Israel Defense Forces
and Israel Police have joined forces
with the Foundation for the Benefit
of Holocaust Victims in Israel and
will adopt survivors in order to stay
in close contact with them.
The idea was proposed several
months ago following a conversa-
tion between a police officer from
a special unit and his neighbor, a
90-year-old Holocaust survivor,
which quickly turned into a long and
emotional heart-to-heart talk.
The officer, who was moved by the
talk, decided to recruit his friends
from the IDF and police's elite units
and set up an extensive network of
hundreds of officers and fighters to
help the survivors.
After getting organized, the fight-

ers turned to the Smile and Love
Association and to the Foundation
for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims
headed by former IDF Personnel
Directorate chief Elazar Stern, and
asked to receive a list of Shoah survi-
vors and their addresses.
Each unit will receive the names
of the survivors living in its area,
and the fighters will visit each one of
them with a box of chocolate and a
bottle of wine.
In addition, the fighters will talk to
the survivors and ask them to con-
tact them with any problem.
"There is no doubt that this is an
extraordinary project which emerged
from the ground, without a noisy
organization:' says Colonel Rony
Kalinsky, director of the Foundation
for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims.
"I call on everyone who can come
and volunteer to do so. I am very
pleased by our people's resourceful-
ness and kindness."
