Censored Voices (Siach Lochamim)

Censored Voices


"Censored Voices is a reminder that glorious myths of wars and the men who fight them wither under scrutiny, in Israel and everywhere else.” – Screen International


In 1967, Israel was threatened by the armies of Egypt,

Syria and Jordan, which had gathered to annihilate the state. Six days later, the war was over. It was seen as a decisive victory for Israel, but beneath the celebrations were stories of the real battles that have remained secret until now.

Directly following the war, a group of young kibbutzniks, led by renowned writer Amos Oz and editor Avraham Shapira, recorded intimate conversations with Israeli soldiers, talking to them about their experiences, the heroism and the tragedies. Censored for 50 years, the tapes are now finally available, and we witness the men as they listen to their confessions from half a century ago. Narrated by Oz himself, this film premiered at Sundance, and won an Ophir Award (Israeli Oscar) for Best Documentary.
