Interesting facts about this location

Kfar Etzion massacre

The Kfar Etzion massacre was a massacre of 129 Jews by the Arab Legion on May 13, 1948, the day before the Israeli Declaration of Independence. All but four of the 133 inhabitants of Kibbutz Kfar Etzion were killed during a three-hour bombardment by Arab artillery, in the wake of a siege that lasted several days. When the remaining defenders surrendered, they assembled near the school where they were photographed waving white flags with their hands in the air.
