Yehiel Slor was a family hero. He was killed at the Achziv Bridge in 1946 during Leil Hagsharim, the Night of the Bridges, a Palmach operation against the British to blow up simultaneously all of the bridges connecting Palestine to its surrounding countries. He died at 18 - decades before my wife was born, and would have been her great uncle. Had he survived, he would be 85 years old today.
