Breaking the Silence:
December 6, 2006
Born in Jerusalem, the son of an American father and Canadian-born mother, Yehuda Shaul immigrated to Israel in 1973, the year of the Yom Kippur war. Much like every other male in Israel, he was drafted into the army at the age of 18. During 14 months of service in Hebron, Yehuda could not bear the moral erosion he saw in himself and his comrades. Now the ultra-Orthodox 24-year-old has organized an exhibit of soldiers' photographs to bring the reality of the territories home.
"We are discharged soldiers who have decided not to keep silent. We all served in the territories. Some served in Gaza, some in Hebron, some in Bethlehem... we all manned checkpoints, participated in patrols and arrests and took part in the war against 'terror'... So far, hundreds of discharged combat soldiers have decided to break the silence and every day more people follow. During our combat service we've handled many different missions. We have one mission left: to talk, tell and not keep anything hidden."
