The Announcement of the Assassination

A darkened and quiet space is the setting for the last moments of Yitzhak Rabin’s story.  Monitors running short videos consequentially show the aftermath of the assassination, beginning with Eitan Haber’s dramatic announcement of Rabin’s death at the hand of an assassin followed by the public’s reaction to the announcement, the procession of dignitaries at Rabin’s funeral and excerpts from the moving words of his granddaughter, Noa Ben Artzi. The space gives pause to reflect on the tremendous loss to Israel and the collective mourning that brought the entire world together.  Lights from the rally in the first exhibit shine through a transparent portion in the ceiling.
