הַגָן שֶׁנִשְׁתַּל
הַגָן שֶׁנִשְׁתַּל לְזֵכֶר נַעַר שֶׁנָּפַל בַּמִּלְחָמָה,
הִתְחִיל לִהְיוֹת דוֹמֶה לוֹ, כְּפִי שֶׁהָיָה לִפְנֵי עֶשְׂרִים וּשְׁמוֹנֶה שָׁנִים,
יוֹתֵר וְיוֹתֵר דוֹמֶה, כָּל שָׁנָה.
הוֹרָיו הַזְקֵנִים בָּאִים הֵנָּה,
כִּמְעַט יום יום, לָשֶׁבֶת בּוֹ עַל סַפְסָל וּלְהִסְתַּכֵּל בּוֹ.

וּבְכָל לַיְלָה מְזִמְזֶמֶת הַזְכִירָה
כְּמָנוֹעַ בַּגָן. בַּיוֹם לא שוֹמְעִים.
[תתימתו של של יהודה עמיחי]

[Board 2]
The Little Park Planted
The little park planted in memory of a boy
Who fell in the war begins
To resemble him
As he was twenty eight years ago.
Year by year they look more alike.
His old parents come almost daily
To sit on a bench
And look at him.

And every night the memory in the garden
Hums like a little motor:
During the day you can’t hear it.

Translated by Y. A. & Ted Hughes

A sign belonging to the "Photograph in Stone" series. In this series, which is located mainly in the center of Jerusalem, historical buildings, prominent figures in the city’s history and more are commemorated.

Until the Six Day War, the armistice agreements with Jordan ruled out bringing heavy weapons into Jerusalem, and flying fighter jets over the city. In light of this, the IDF marches that took place during the Independence Day in Jerusalem were minor. After the Six Day War, these restrictions were lifted, and the first parade that marched after the war was large in scope, and for the residents of Jerusalem "huge."
After this parade, the annual parades were canceled, and only the last parade took place in 1973 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the State of Israel.
