Ilay, Yishai’s oldest nephew and the only one to actually meet Uncle Yishai, was nearly two years old when his uncle was killed. When strangers see pictures of the two of them together, they ask, “What, Yishai had a son?”

Today, Ilay is studying film at Sapir College. One of his assignments was to make a three-minute film, using only existing visual material. After speaking with Hagai, Yishai’s younger brother, he decided to describe the thoughts that go through the mind of a bereaved family member when he looks through the boxes of memorabilia.
