Kibutz El Rom

Oz 77 is a battle heritage site in Kibbutz Elrom near the Valley of Tears (Emek HaBacha). Here, inside a cinema is screened a fascinating film which tells the story of the battle of the Valley of Tears, when the Syrian Army tried to penetrate the Israeli frontline during the Yom Kippur War and was stopped by the Israeli Armored Corps’ 77th "Oz” Regiment of the 7th Armor Brigade together with soldiers from the 188th Armor Brigade. In the film are heard testimonies and hair-raising recordings from the battle field. The commander of the "Oz” Regiment, Avigdor Kahalani, who received a decoration for his part in this bloody battle, describes how even with smaller numbers and difficult conditions, without night vision equipment and not much ammunition, being tired and even exhausted, the Israeli fighters managed to overcome the enemy, with only Zionism and determination on their side. The film’s length is approximately 20 minutes.
