The Ultimate Pain

Israel is the only country in the world that has a National Remembrance day for it's fallen soldiers where the whole nation stands in silence. Sirens sound at 8 pm and again at 11am. Nearly 24,000 soldiers have fallen since Israel's War of Independence in 1948. All military graves are the same, only the inscriptions are different. These photographs were taken at Jerusalem's Mt. Herzl military cemetery in 2005.
