  • Israel Cohen , 1914-1994 was a watchmaker that came from a noble Jewish Hungarian family.

    Israel was a holocaust survived, for years he was moved from one concentration camp to another.
    Most of his family did not survive the holocaust.

    After the second world war he left Europe with his wife And moved to Israel.

    My father, (on the right in the picture) told me that when they lived in Jerusalem his father worked as a security guard at "Yad Vashem" the Jewish people’s living memorial museum to the Holocaust.

    I always wondered why he chose to work there, after everything he went through.
