Hagar Brodutch

40

Hagar was kidnapped from her home on kibbutz Kfar Aza with her three young children on Saturday morning, October 7th.
The day before the attack, the whole family had gathered to celebrate Ofri's 10th birthday. Her birthday cake was still in the fridge, with a candle waiting to be lit on Saturday morning.
When the attack began, Hagar took her children (Ofri is 10, Yuval is 8 and Oria is 4) to the safe room.
At the same time, Avihay, the father of the family, rescued Avigail Idan, their three-year-old neighbor, who had just witnessed her parents being murdered.
Avihay left Avigail with his family in the safe room and ran to defend the kibbutz. When he returned home, wounded, he found it empty and feared the absolute worst had happened.
He later discovers that his entire family, including little Avigail, has been kidnapped by Hamas terrorists and taken to Gaza.
Avihay fought to get his family back. He started a protest in front of the Military Operations Centre in Tel Aviv. He sat with his dog and a sign that read, “My family was taken to Gaza.” As the days went on, Avihay became one of the more vocal family members in the fight to bring home all the hostages.
Avihay declared that he will stay there until he is reunited with his family. He was indeed reunited with his wife and children 51 days later! Avihay and his father Shmuel say they will continue to advocate for the remaining hostages, claiming that the State of Israel did not fulfill its duty to protect the kidnapped, and therefore it must bring them all back, now.
Hagar and her children were released from Hamas captivity as part of a temporary cease-fire deal, and came back home on 26 November.
