Ze’ev Tibi Ram is one of two Holocaust survivors who fought in every Israeli war.
He perfectly symbolizes “Shoah ve Tkuma”- Holocaust and rebirth. As a Holocaust survivor, Tibi understands better than anyone the importance of protecting the Jewish state.
He lost his whole family in the Holocaust but survived Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen.
After being separated from his mother and eventually finding her at the end of the war, she disappeared and Tibi never saw her again. His brother survived until the end of the war, but died shortly after.
Now, Tibi gives lectures to soldiers about the Holocaust and his extensive military experience. He is also the proud grandfather of an IDF soldier
He says life has been good – except for that one insane year of Nazi persecution.
