8th graders in Hod Hasharon - Screening of Operation Wedding with POZ Sylva Zalmanson

After you were in detention and suffered from harsh conditions, did you regret trying to escape from the USSR?

one of the 8th grade students in Hod Hasharon wisely asked Sylva Zalmanson, a former prisoner of Zion, the heroine of the "Operation Wedding" affair. Sylva answered:

I didn't regret it even for a moment. I knew that the suffering was worth the fact that maybe one day I would be in Israel and especially that thanks to our sacrifice many other people received permits to leave the USSR and were free."
