Censored Voices

Mor Loushy 2015

The 1967 ‘Six-Day’ war ended with Israel’s decisive victory; conquering Jerusalem, Gaza, Sinai and the West Bank. It is a war portrayed, to this day, as a righteous undertaking – a radiant emblem of Jewish pride. One week after the war, a group of young kibbutznicks, led by renowned author Amos Oz and Editor Avraham Shapira, recorded intimate conversations with soldiers returning from the battlefield. The recording revealed an honest look at the moment Israel turned from David to Goliath. The Israeli army censored the recordings, allowing the kibbutznicks to publish only a fragment of the conversations, until now.


  • New York Times
    'An essential amendment to the historical record, "Censored Voices" reminds us that no war is entirely virtuous and makes clear that, even at the time, the dangers of becoming an occupying force were evident.'
    Daniel M. Gold
  • Washington Post
    '"Censored Voices" is an essential documentary. Its subject is nothing less than loss of innocence, the seeds of hatred and the illusory nature of victory.'
    Alan Zilberman
  • Los Angeles Times
    'Captivating newsreel footage from the conflict underscores these audio confessionals; Loushy also filmed the men in the present day, listening to their honest, open, decades-old testimonies.'
    Robert Abele
