Martyrs of the 1929 Riots in Hebron

List of the victims.

16.8.22, 15:49 | נעם ארנון | 54 reads
18th of Av is the day of remembrance for the 1929 massacre in Hebron (August 24, 1929).
 
Rioting took place throughout the country, in which about 150 Jewish residents were murdered, out of about 150,000 Jews who lived in the Land of Israel. The official number is 133, but it does not include Jews who were wounded, suffered terrible agony and later died. Also in Hebron, the official number is 67, but two more died later from wounds sustained in the riots.
 
For comparison, imagine, God forbid, one out of a thousand terrorist victims today - about 7000 within a week.
Describing the massacre itself is unspeakably horrific. Photographs of some of the dead and wounded appear on the
Hebron website. The photographs are difficult to view.
 
Below is a list of the victims of the 1929 riots in Hebron.
