The Soldier’s Opinion

Israel 2022 | 57 minutes

From 1948 onward, the Israeli military censorship examined soldiers’ letters under the guise of preventing the disclosure of military secrets. But unknown to soldiers was a secret apparatus which copied their letters and stored them. The purpose was to analyze the views of ordinary soldiers, and the findings were presented to high-ranking officials in a top secret report titled “The Soldier’s Opinion.”
