בתי ביברמן - קיר מגן טיפוסי
בתי ביברמן הוקמו בשנים 1946-1945. במלחמת העצמאות הם עמדו בשולי העיר היהודית, בקו התפר לשכונת קטמון, ומכאן חשיבותם במערך ההגנה העירוני דאז. בכניסותיהם נבנו קירות מגן והחלונות בחדרי המדרגות נאטמו בשקי חול. כך הפכו למקלטים גם לתושבי הסביבה. בזמן המצור על ירושלים שוכנו בהם נהגי השיירות. קירות מגן כאלה הוקמו אז בפתחי בנייני מגורים בכל רחבי העיר. נותרו מהם רק בודדים.

Biberman Houses - typical Protective Wall
The Biberman Houses were built in 1945-1946. Reinforced concrete protective walls were erected and staircase windows were sealed with sandbags. During the siege of Jerusalem, convoy drivers were housed here. Very few of these protective walls which were constructed throughout the city have survived, hence their importance regarding the commemoration of Israel’s Independence.
