A museum opened in Israel that highlights Jews who fought in World War II.
Around 1.5 million Jewish soldiers served in World War II. Of those who served, approximately 250,000 lost their lives.
To ensure that their bravery and sacrifice are not forgotten, a new museum has been opened. The museum houses artifacts, equipment, and stories that keep the memory of Jewish service in World War II alive for new generations. The museum also houses objects and materials documenting other military conflicts that have shaped Israel's history.
The museum is located in Latrun which is halfway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
