Secrets, Spies & Video Tapes

The Israel Intelligence Centre

Tuesday 30 July

Near a cinema multiplex and a nondescript highway junction outside Tel Aviv is the place where Israel’s secrets go when they get old. The Israel Intelligence Heritage & Commemoration Centre (IICC) is devoted to shedding light on some of the more secretive chapters in Israel’s history.

Its mission is to honour, remember and preserve information about members of Israel’s intelligence agencies, and to commemorate the fallen from all branches of Israeli Intelligence.

The Centre, a non-governmental organisation, was created in response to public pressure for more transparency.

During our visit we will see two films: The Power of Knowledge, which describes the process by which the intelligence community manages current threats, and an historic documentary film which tells of the IICC’s involvement in the rescue of Jewish communities in peril in Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, Ethiopia and other regions. From there we will visit the Terror Exhibition Display which illustrates tangible threats, propaganda, the perpetuation of hate and the Intelligence War against terrorism.

After our lunch break, we will hear veterans of the intelligence community telling stories of missions in which they were involved. To end our visit, we will walk through the Commemoration Maze.
