This is an incredibly important book because its accounts have been historically verified and because it forms part of a wider project called Breaking the Silence to create a physical intellectual and emotional space to reflect on what serving in a system that dehumanises people does to them its soldiers on an individual and societal level I think every unit in the IDF is represented in these testimonies It is incredibly upsetting to read but it helped me understand the mechanics of occupation the mechanism of humiliation and frightening people on the ground the disruption of a way of life and the powerlessness of the soldiers too in the system and chains of command It seems like a kind of hell and a kind of nightmare neither side has a strategy or plan to escape from The work of Breaking the Silence in forming humane and friendly links with the Palestinian community and talking to the world about the reality of IDF service is extremely brave as we know part of healing from trauma are the acts of testimony and witness and integration of these events into a coherent self Reminded me of the wonderful Rabbi Jonathan Sacks talking on Holocaust Day about the need for friendliness to counteract brutality in the world This needs to happen on an individual and societal level The actual testimonies are well written put in the context of the political framework and form a useful reference in general for those working with military andor trauma or wanting to understand the very human experience that lies beneath the news headlines Know that in reading this book and bearing witness you too have become part of that healing process for this embattled part of the world I do wish there had been some follow up of the people that contributed to the testimonies how their experiences impacted their lives outside of military service and them as people outside of their experiences of servingHow did these experiences change them and their attitudes Do they dissociate from these memories or use their experiences in life I wanted of a context I guess
