This monument, which was erected in 1954, is symbolically located in the plaza across from the police station. The sculpture, the work of sculptor Chana Orloff, depicts the struggle between a lion-symbolizing the British Empire, and a young cub - symbolizing the Jewish Yishuv (settlement).
The monument is dedicated to the three Etzel soldiers who were killed in the attack on the British police station and to Dov Gruner who was caught wounded, and became a symbol of the struggle against the British rule. Gruner was one of those hangea in the gallows in the Akko prison in April 1947, together with other Etzel soldiers: Mordechai Elkachi, Yechiel Dov Dresner and Eliezer Kashani.
