JOHANNESBURG, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) on Friday added its voice to a chorus of condemnation against police brutality on ""Fees Must Fall"" protesters at universities across the country.

This came after Shaeera Kalla, a former student leader at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, was shot several times by police with rubber bullets on Thursday.

Several other students were also shot and wounded during nationwide protests against tuition fee hikes.

""As the ANCWL we find the use of rubber bullets and teargas on an unarmed group of students appalling. We believe the role of the law enforcement officers is restoring order in universities,"" ANCWL Secretary-General Meokgo Matuba said.

She said the ANCWL respects the rights of students to peacefully protest for their demands.

""However, violence and destruction of university property by the students cannot be justified,"" Matuba said, calling on students to refrain from destroying university property.

""We calls on all stakeholders, students, government and academic institutions to work together to speedily find solutions and resolve the issues,"" Matuba said.

South African universities have been hit by a new wave of student protests which erupted late last month after Minister of Higher Education and Training Blade Nzimande allowed universities to raise fees, provided that it does not exceed 8 percent. Enditem

As a proud patriot sandalias ecco rebajas , Brooklyn-born Dan Nadel enlisted in the U.S. army right after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. But there was another force driving him to battle — his Jewish faith.

""What Hitler was doing to the Jews, I knew he had to be killed and stopped,"" the 95-year-old decorated veteran said from his home in Jerusalem. ""That was my motivation.""

Nadel is among a dwindling population of Jewish war veterans who battled the Nazis — a group that until recently received little recognition in the Jewish state. Seventy years after the war ended, Israel is finally paying homage to the 1.5 million Jewish soldiers with a planned museum and research center.

Nadel became an officer and landed on Normandy shortly after D-Day. He went on to earn five battle stars while leading combat engineer troops in the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of France. Eventually botas ecco rebajas , he helped free his fellow Jews from Nazi concentration camps.

""You can't imagine what it was like. The stench, people walking around just like skeletons, just bones and skin, that's all ,"" he recalled. ""It was terrible. Our general, Patton, when he went into the camps, he puked.""

Stories of the death camps are well-known in Nadel's adopted home of Israel zapatos ecco españa rebajas , but the odysseys of Jewish soldiers are less well chronicled. In Israel, World War II history is predominantly focused on the Holocaust and its 6 million Jewish victims. When Jewish heroism from that era is invoked, it typically refers to the rebels who resisted the Nazis in the ghettos or volunteers from the Holy Land who later helped establish Israel.

Earlier this month, both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin attended Israel's official ceremony marking 70 years since Victory Day in Europe and acknowledged that the contributions of Jewish veterans have often been overlooked. They said financing would be found to complete the construction of the planned museum zapatos ecco hombre rebajas , which has been bogged down in a bureaucratic stalemate for more than a decade.

""We stand here as representatives of a people who gave their best sons in the battleground. While their brothers were being led to destruction, the Jewish warriors stood on the front lines,"" said Rivlin. ""Do our children know this? Do our grandchildren know that the Jewish people fought in the killing fields of Europe?""

More than 250,000 Jewish soldiers died in battle. Many were among the first to liberate the Nazi death camps zapatos ecco rebajas , often comforting the dazed, emaciated prisoners in Yiddish.

Zvi Kan-Tor, a retired Israeli general, has taken on the mission of preserving the memory of these Jewish war veterans ECCO Hombre Leather Negras Rebajas , leading the efforts to establish the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II in the central Israeli town of Latrun.

A structure is already standing and some exhibitions are ready to be displayed, but the funding isn't there yet. His hope is that together with private donations and government assistance it can be completed while some of the approximately 5,000 veterans remaining in Israel are still alive.

""World War II in our collective memory has been sealed by a single word: Holocaust,"" said Kan-Tor. ""We've heard about the victimhood — let's tell this side too... This is the missing piece. Maybe we can finally tell the full story of the Jewish people.""

That story includes British signalman Norman Cohen ECCO Hombre Cool 2.0 Textile Gtx Negras Rebajas , who landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day with the British 2nd Army. As a radio operator under the command of Gen. Miles Dempsey, he received the German transmission on their surrender and then stumbled upon the scene of Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler's suicide in Luneburg.

""I did my job. You are in a place in a certain time — it doesn't make you a hero. You are just there,"" said Cohen, 91 ECCO Illinois Monk Strap Negras Rebajas , who had withstood the blitz in his British hometown of Coventry before enlisting — and then dodging some close calls in combat.

But in Israel he is often mistaken for a survivor, not a warrior. ""It is very difficult to convey to the next generation what I feel,"" he said.

The Jewish fighters who returned to their home countries were not part of the early Zionist narrative, said Tamar Ketko ECCO Hombre Soft 8 High Top Negras Rebajas , the curator of the new museum. That honor belonged to the partisans, the Zionist volunteers and the plucky resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, who better fit the country's pioneering fighting spirit.
