Bernard (Bugajer) Bar-Nir was born in Brussels, Belgium on September 28, 1931, survived the Holocaust in which he lost most of his family, made aliyah, fought as an IDF officer in the Six Day War, taking command of the Mount Zion area, and worked for most of his career as a broadcaster at Israel Radio’s French News. He died in Jerusalem on February 28, 2018, and was buried at Givat Shaul the following day. This moving eulogy was delivered in Hebrew by his cousin at the funeral, and translated with love by his friend, Steve Linde.
