חיים הזז
בבניין זה חי ויצר הסופר חיים הזז משנת 1961 ועד לפטירתו. חיים הזז (1973-1898) היה חתן פרס ישראל הראשון לספרות ונשיא אגודת הסופרים העבריים. מאז עלייתו ארצה, בשנת 1931, התגורר בירושלים ובמשך שנים רבות נדד בין שכונות העיר. כאשר בא לדירת קבע בבית זה, פתח את דלתו לפני כל שדרות העם ופעל למען הציבור. יצירתו רבת פנים, שיעורו מלוא ארון הספרים של בית ישראל.

Translation of the text on the sign:
[The Hebrew text contains another paragraph that does not exist in the English version]
Since immigrating to Israel, in 1931, he has lived in Jerusalem and for many years traveled between the city’s neighborhoods. When he came to a permanent apartment in this house, he opened his door before all the avenues of the people and acted for the public. His work is multifaceted, his lesson is full of the bookcase of the House of Israel.
