In the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel, a 3-year old boy said he was killed with an ax in his previous life. He appeared in the village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough found the remains of a man there. He also showed where the murder weapon was found.
In this book, “Children Lived Before: Again Today” , tells the story of this child, along with other stories of children who seem to remember their past lives with accuracy. It was written by a German therapist, Trutz Hardo. The story of the boy was witnessed by Dr. Eli Lasch, who is best known for the development of the medical system in Gaza as part of an operation in the Israeli government in the 1960’s. Dr. Lasch, who died in 2009, told the outstanding events.
The boy was a Druze ethnic group, and its culture having reincarnation is accepted as fact. His story nonetheless had the power to surprise his community.
He was born with a long, red skin on his head. The Druze believes, like some other cultures, birthmarks are related to past-life death. It is customary for adults to take the child to the age of 3 to the home of his past life if he remembers it. The boy knew he was from the village, so they went there. When they arrived at tha village, the boy recalled his name in his previous life.
A local village said the man, claimed by the boy, has gone missing four years from now. His friends and family he might have strayed into hostile territory surroundings as sometimes happens.
This child also remembers the full name of his killer. He faced the alleged killer but he did not admit to the crime. The boy took the elder where the body was buried. They found the skeleton of a man with a gun in the head corresponded to the child’s skin. They also found the ax, the murder weapon.
With all these evidences, the murderer admitted to the crime. Dr. Lasch was the only non-Druze present to this whole process
