The names of the other fatalities from that same atrocious assassination: Shmuel Dov Spitzer, Eliezer Itzhak Weil, Joseph Nazari, Tamar Geller-Neuman, Michael Goldenberg, Chaim Gur-Arieh, Aliza Lasker, Chai Zaken Polatoff, Michal Raami -Berlin, Yossef Margalit and Israel Vald.
About 500 employees and visitors were in the building at the time, and about a quarter of them were injured to various degrees of severity. Many of those injured were employees of the various offices and passersby. Some of them were well-known public figures: The Director of the Palestine Broadcasting Service Edwin Samuel, the son of the first High Commissioner Herbert Samuel; Reuven Zaslani (Shiloah), a senior official of the Jewish Agency's Political Department; Dr. N.M. Gelber, worker of the Zionist Archive; Dr. Walter Eytan, Principle of the Jewish Agency's Public Service College and later the Director-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Israel's ambassador to France; and Aura Herzog, the young wife of the Agency's Security Officer, Chaim Herzog, later President of the State of Israel. We shall tell of her injuries later on.
