On the sign:
בית הקברות קרית-ענבים בתקופת הקרבות
"...בית הקברות היה במרחק של כמה מאות צעדים, והוא גדל והתרחב מיום ליום.
הוא הפך והיה לחלק בלתי נפרד מההוי היום יומי שלנו. חוטי מחשבה נוגים מאוד, מחשבות שלא כדאי היה להעלותן על דל-שפתיים, נמשכו מאתנו, החיים עדיין. אל בית קברות זה.
ולא היה מפלט מהן. "
מתוך : "חברים מספרים על ג’ימי" בהוצאת הקיבוץ המאוחד ספר הזכרון לאהרון שמי (ג’ימי) ממפקדי "פלמ"ח - הראל" שנפל במישלט המשותף (כיום בית - שמש)

Translation of the text on the sign:

Kiryat Anavim Cemetery during the battles
"... The cemetery was a few hundred paces away, and it grew and expanded day by day.
It has become and has been an integral part of our daily lives. Threads of thought very melancholy, thoughts not worth bringing to lips, were drawn from us, life still. To this cemetery.
And there was no refuge from them. "
From: "Friends Tell of Jimmy" Published by Kibbutz Hameuchad The Book of Remembrance for Aharon Shemi (Jimmy) One of the commanders of "Palmach - Harel" who fell in the joint shelter (now Beit Shemesh)
