Excerpt from the movie “Because the Day Is Coming”, which was produced by the company “Peamim”. After the establishment of Kibbutz Amir, about 500 families lived there. The announcer, Misha Asherov, tells how from a state of swamp and fever the kibbutz became a bustling center of nature and creation, but the period of peace did not last long and the War of Independence broke out and the horror of destruction stood above the kibbutz. The kibbutz members had no choice, and the evacuation of the children from the area of heavy fighting against the Syrian and Lebanese armies began. At the end of the fighting, three of the defenders of the settlement, Avraham Tessler, Yosef Schlemins, and Yosef Rosenfeld, fell in the battle of defending the kibbutz.
