Terror Survivor Details Horrors of Israel Attack


Adele Raemer loved living in her small Israeli kibbutz, calling it “95% heaven” there before the horror of Hamas’ Oct. 7 terror attack shattered that reality. Raemer told CBN News she started hearing rockets around 6:30 a.m. that morning. She said it didn’t take long to realize the assault was “something different” from the normal incursions that unfold, especially considering its widespread and intense nature.

Soon, messages started coming in on Raemer’s internal kibbutz messaging system letting residents know Israel had been invaded. She and others in the community locked their doors and windows and went into their safe rooms. Raemer and her son spent hours inside, fearing what was happening outside, until she exited due to physical pain and the need to use her restroom. That’s when she noticed the terrorists had broken the slats on her window yet no one was inside; somehow, they had skipped her home.

Raemer is still struggling to process all that unfolded, noting the realities of what her community endured remind her of the horrors the Jewish people faced before and during World War II. “These are stories that I heard when I was a child about the Holocaust,” Raemer said. “I’m living in my own country, in the land of Israel. We have an army. We’re 2023. How is it that I’m hiding in my safe room from the Nazis of 2023 who are coming to kill me because I’m a Jew — just because I’m a Jew?” She continued, “They don’t have any national aspirations. If they did, they could have had a country long ago, numerous times. They’re just there to kill us. They want us gone. When they say, ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.’ That’s a genocidal war cry and I take them at their word.”

Raemer said she’s now a refugee in her own country, as she still can’t live in her home or community. She’s currently helping raise money to rebuild and make the community “bigger, and better, and stronger, and safer.” Watch her tell her harrowing story.
