Share this event:

A personal story from the Yom Kippur War.  

October 1973: A young physician in Israel prepares to celebrate the Jewish High Holidays with his wife and children.  Suddenly a military invasion changes his life forever.

Israeli Author, Itzhak Brook, discusses his book, "In the Sands of Sinai: A Physician's Account of the Yom Kippur War".  This book chronicles Dr. Itzhak Brook's transformation from a civilian to a wartime doctor.  In vivid personal details, the author, a veteran of both the Israeli Defense Forces and the United States Navy, recounts his first experience in war.  He describes his own doubt and misgivings of being a physician facing the daily struggle of survival in the Sinai battle zone.  Expecting to heal his soldier's physical combat wounds, Brook unexpectedly must address his soldier's psychological battlefield trauma.  Hear Dr. Brook's perspective of a war that shaped his own life, and his nation's fragile identity.
