Notes on the Geography of Jerusalem: West Jerusalem: Israeli: Photo 9

world pictures Jerusalem: West Jerusalem: Israeli

A peaceful-looking village scene? This is a mental hospital on the west side of Jerusalem, near the industrial neighborhood of Kfar Sha'ul. But it's also an example of how the Israelis, so eager to memorialize one past, have assiduously erased another. Neatly paved and modernized, the hospital occupies the village of Deir Yassin, many of whose residents were killed in the most infamous Jewish atrocity of the War of Independence.
