On November 30, 1947, while Jews were still in the streets of Palestine celebrating the UN partition vote, Arabs murdered seven Jews.
Six of them were on a bus. Arabs threw grenades at an Egged bus traveling from Netanya to Jerusalem, and one exploded inside.
Devora Yaari was injured, and her husband Shalom rushed to her aid. He was shot dead in cold blood.
Shoshana Mizrahi Farhi, 22, was on her way to Jerusalem to get married. She was killed.
The other victims were Hirsh Starer, Mrs. Hanna Weiss, and Miss Haya Yisraeli.
Another Egged bus was attacked a half hour later, and Nechama Hacohen, a pathologist at Hadassah Hospital, was killed.
