A ceremony was held on Thursday to unveil a plaque in memory of 58 people who were murdered in a double car bombing on February 22, 1948 on Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem. Hundreds were wounded in the attack. Some of them took part in the ceremony, along with bereaved relatives, Chairman Tzvika Pozis-Shahak of the terror victims' organization and Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Dov Kalmanovich.
The unveiling culminate a long struggle by the terror victims for a memorial. Kalmanovich said, "The sign that was put here does not stop the race of life, however late because we were running the race of life and did not remember the dead enough... We've proven to everyone that we are victorious ... It's a pity for the victims but through their death, they commanded us to live."
