(It seems to be
the Television Building, when they removed the
bandage off my eyes then the broadcaster stating his
dialogue with me, I could not open my eyes because
of the intensive lights in the studio, then I glanced at
faces surrounding me while they were looking at me
with pride and curiosity.
There had been among people a young man smoking
in nervousness, gazing at me with sharp gazes then
talking with his fellows.
After the end of recording with me for
the Television then for Radio Cairo in Hebrew, they
conducted me to my prison. They arranged for me upon
my demand, along my captivity, a number of tours to the
Pyramids, Hilton Hotel and meeting some Jews who
were still living in Egypt.
During my captivity period, I was
asking myself whether the rest of my colleagues
found their way to a safe place. After my return, I
was astonished of the size of our losses although
no real figures had been declared till then about
I am too perplexed, how did that happen
to our invincible army, with its long arm and
wide experience? how could we find ourselves in this
shameful position? how did our army lose the speed
of movement and its permanent alertness?)-memoirs of Assaf Yagoury the most famous Israeli captive.
