Memorial Day 2006

Tonight is the eve of the Memorial Day in Israel. In recent years, the victims of terrorists acts have been added to the national memorial. The photograph shows the improvised memorial in front of the Dolphinarium night club. On the night of 1 June 2001 a suicide bomber blew himself up in the cue in front of this popular night club. 21 teenagers died in one of the most terrible attacks of the Second Intifada. Most of them were born in Russia and moved to Israel with their parents.
Overall, Israeli society deserves a considerable credit for not cracking up during that difficult period.
