Today in camp was Yom Dmuyot. The chanichim learned about different important figures in modern Israeli history. Today at lunch, we remembered David “Dugo” Leitner who passed away last week. Dugo was a Holocaust survivor who never gave up hope. Each year on the anniversary of the Death March, he would eat falafel to celebrate his victory over the Nazis. The State of Israel joined Dugo and every year on January 18th, Israelis eat falafel with him as a sign of hope and freedom. As Dugo would say, “Am Yisrael Chai V’Mapsut V’Ochel Falafel”.
