50 year anniversary: Six Day War in pictures
An exhibition at the Yitzhak Rabin Center commemorating the anniversary of the Six-Day War presents objects, videos, photographs and documents describing the story of the campaign and the chief of staff who led it; recognize yourself among the soldiers? Contact us.
The exhibition, in collaboration with the IDF archive, the defense establishment and the Government's Press Office, will open on June 5 at the changing exhibition complex at the Rabin Center in Tel Aviv.
The exhibition combines archival footage with digital additions such as dynamic maps, animated stills, animations and quizzes. It presents as vivid a description of the Six-Day War as possible—from the waiting period to the euphoria that followed the days of the battle, alongside the story of Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin.
The exhibition opens with a half-hour film, which reveals, among other things, maneuvers that Rabin led before his appointment as chief of staff, chapters from the IDF's preparations for the war, the stages of regional deterioration, and the final speech on Mount Scopus. Visitors are then welcome to wander through the exhibits.
The exhibition will open on Monday, June 5, and will also be translated into English. Reservations can be made in advance, for groups and individuals. The exhibition will replace the exhibit on Operation Entebbe, which has been there for two years.
