Israeli organization “Breaking the Silence” celebrated their tenth anniversary last week in Habima Square in Tel Aviv with public readings from a selection of the nearly one thousand Israeli Defense Forces soldier testimonies the group has collected since their inception. The event, held on June 6th, also served to mark the 47th year of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. Joining the public in reading testimonies were noted Israeli journalists, authors, activists, politicians, and intellectuals.

Israel Social TV was on hand to ask the following question: “What is your attitude towards the claim that reading the testimonies is washing the dirty laundry in public?”
