Thirty Israel Defense Forces officers and soldiers will on Sunday - the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day - visit 80 aging Holocaust survivors hospitalized in Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.

The soldiers will be briefed by hospital social worker Dr. Varda Stenger, who will direct them to the survivors’ beds. Every soldier will receive a card with the names of three patients and the departments in which they are being treated.

When the soldiers arrive, they will hold conversations with the survivors to ease their loneliness and anxiety and present them with a certificate. It is part of a Sheba project launched a few months ago to bring some joy to survivors.
