The State of Israel was born three years after the Holocaust in 1948. The Jewish people had been exiled from their land for nearly nineteen hundred years and even though the re-establishment of Israel had been agreed by the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the survivors of the Holocaust had to fight the British occupation to establish the new state. We visit the associated battles and many other areas of military history in this fascinating country.

Call our specialists today and find out more about the Military & Heritage tours we offer. Let us know about your military genealogy interests ahead of the tour and we will do our best to include cemetery and memorial visits of your interest.
