Nathan, son of Ahuva and Shimon Vishnitsky, was born in 1922 in Kielce, Poland. He was four years old when his family immigrated to Israel in 1926. He grew up in the Neve Sha’anan neighborhood of Haifa. At the beginning of the Second World War (1940) he was one of the first volunteers to the British Army, to an infantry unit. He first worked in military installations in Israel, then was transferred to an Israeli engineering company and moved to the Tunisian border. When he landed in Italy he moved to the front, but did not get to join the Jewish Brigade and was very upset about it. After six years of service he was released and returned to Israel. He was an active member of the Haganah in his Haifa neighborhood. In December 1947 he volunteered again, participated in the defense of the neighborhood and the conquest of Haifa. He was sent to the Upper Galilee with the Haifa infantry battalion, first in Manara, as a squad commander and in charge of the regiment’s platoon, and from there he moved to the Rosh Pina military base. Nathan served in the Carmeli Brigade and participated in Operation Brosh to eliminate the bridgehead. In a battle in the Mishmar HaYarden area, he and his friends sacrificed themselves to allow the platoon to safely reach Machanayim, and Nathan fell on 3 Tamuz, July 10, 1948. On the 3rd of Tammuz 5710 (18.6.1950) he was brought to eternal rest in the cemetery in Haifa.
