1187 Palmach fighters died in action during the War of Independence and the struggle for the establishment of the State of Israel. A major objective of the activities of the Palmach Generation Association is to commemorate them and perpetuate their memories and life stories. Palmach members feel that they are obligated to commemorate the fallen and to convey their heritage to coming generations.|
A resume has been prepared for each Palmach member who dies in action before the establishment of Israel and during the War of Independence. These resumes can be read in this section of the site, which also includes additional information, such as photographs and parts of their bequests. Additional information about fallen members is available in the Memorial Room.
