The central project in commemoration of President Chaim Herzog is the Chaim Herzog Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II. It is being built in Latrun, a site of historic significance between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. This Museum is designed to tell the unique story of Jewish heroism and the contrbution of some 1.5 million Jews from across the globe to the defeat of the Nazi regime. The Museum will also commemorate the 250,000 Jewish soldiers who gave their lives during the War. Chaim Herzog fought the Nazis as an officer in the British army in WWII, and in 1948 he fought in Latrun during Israel’s War of Independence, as an officer in the IDF. The Museum is a joint venture between the Yad Chaim Herzog Memorial Foundation, the Association for Establishing the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II, and the government of Israel. The attached brochure provides some basic details about the project.
