117 Mount Herzl Without Heroes

Meeting place: the entrance to the military cemetery (the lower entrance to Mount Herzl)

A tour of Israel’s National Military Cemetery led by Roi Offenbacher, the author of More Than One, Less Than Two. The two-hour tour will deal with the design of the cemetery in the context of mourning practices in Israel, while examining how military headstones have undergone modifications as a result of changes occurring in the collective memory. Offenbacher will focus on stories about fallen IDF soldiers, the circumstances of whose deaths were certified as “fell in the line of duty” or “died while in service.” He will also talk about the politics, the hierarchy and the exclusion that characterize Israeli bereavement.
