The myth of Latrun in the case of the number of immigrants who died, eh, is not really related to numbers. Um, very pedantic and empiricist historians like to argue and to waste a lot of ink so to speak on figures, on numbers, as if the numbers are really important for the construction of myth, or if you have the accurate number you can destroy a myth or debunk it and I don't think it's very true. // I think what is important is that there were enough immigrants who died // over Latrun.
