3-Year-Old Remembers Past Life, Identifies Murderer and Location of Body


A 3-year-old boy in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel said he was murdered with an axe in his previous life. He showed village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough they found a man’s skeleton there. He also showed the elders where the murder weapon was found, and upon digging, they did indeed find an axe there.


This is a hard to believe story of reincarnation of a man who was supposedly murdered by another with an axe. Surprising enough, it is said that it was a three year old boy near the border of Syria and Israel who disclosed the past life incident – to locate his body and also identify his murderer. Could this be real, let us analyze the facts.

In May 2014, TheEpochTimes.com reported this unbelievable reincarnation story from a German therapist Trutz Hardo’s bookChildren Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today” copyrighted in 2002. The story became widely popular; however, its authenticity remains unknown!

According to Trutz Hardo, the boy belongs to Druze group of people, who, as soon as a child is born, look for birthmarks, as they believe that they stem from death wounds received in past life. If there are any such birthmarks, they try to find out something about the child’s past life once he/she starts speaking. In present case, it is to be noted that the boy remembered his name and his murderer’s after seeing couple of villages and then ending up in his village of past life. This discovery was supposedly made along with a group of Druze people, when Professor Eli Lasch was invited to join them, because they knew he was interested in reincarnation.

Dr. Eli Lasch

Dr. Eli Lasch, who supposedly witnessed the incident and told the same to Trutz Hardo, died in 2009. Initially, he was a medical doctor, who was offered by the government of Israel to develop the medical system in Gaza after Israel took it over in the 1967 war. He worked as a pediatrician in first hand, and later healing (by prayers) became his passion.

Druze People

In his own words, Trutz Hardo says that Druze people believe in reincarnation (and ‘soul eternity’), and it forms the basis of their beliefs. The Druze also believe that they are always reborn as Druze. Their social customs differ markedly from those of the Muslims or Christians and they are known to form a close knit and cohesive social community.

Considering these facts, it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of this reincarnation story from Trutz Hardo said to be witnessed by Dr. Eli Lasch. If you have any credible information on this particular case, please mail us.


Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that after biological death of a human being, his soul or spirit begins a new life in a new body. It is a central belief of the Indian religions. Researchers, especially Psychiatrists have shown few scientifically unexplainable cases of reincarnation in the past. A 4-year-old Indian girl named Shanti Devi has proved to be the reincarnated spirit of another woman.
