The raid on Entebbe: a story you probably don’t know

I remember vividly the raid on Entebbe when Israeli special forces freed the hijacked passengers of an Air France flight in 1976. Indeed I remember subsequently seeing two films about the audacious episode.

Now a new film, entitled simply “Entebbe”, is about to hit our screens in April and this has prompted “Guardian” columnist Hadley Freeman to write about one particular hero of that event.

Michel Cojot-Goldberg was one of the oldest friends of the father of Freeman and she has written a fascinating piece on his vital role in the raid. You can read the story here.
