Dakar The story
The Dakar was an Israeli submarine. In 25.1.1968 24:02 a last telegram has been received from the “Dakar”. In 25.1.1968 08:00 the Dakar was supposed to contact the HQ (command) but it didn’t. The auscultation to the Dakar be reinforced and at noon an interrupted connection was made with the Dakar.
In the morning of the 26.1.1968 after the contact with the Dakar has failed the search after the Dakar has began. The search operation was huge; boats & planes scaned a huge part of Dakar’s lane in hard weather conditions.
In the 4.2.1968 the Dakar has been announced missing with all its crew-69 sailors. After thirteen months, in the 9.2.1969 the emergency float of the Dakar has been found in Han-Yoones (חאן-יונס). The float was checked but didn’t provide any new information.
Thirty-one years after the Dakar disappeared, on 27.5.1999 it was found 500 k”m from Israel, between Crete and Cyprus, 2900 m’ under the sea. There isn’t a big chance to pull out of the water the Dakar or the bodies (if there are any bodies).

The Dakar’s tag
I choose to do my presentation on the Dakar because I see this subject very interesting because my uncle (Michael Gal Heppner) was one of the Dakar’s crew.
