"PLAZA EMBAJADA DE ISRAEL" Retiro District Tip by mtncorg

Retiro District, Buenos Aires: 25 reviews and 31 photos

  Silent benches where the embassy once stood
by mtncorg

This small plaza on the corner of Arroyo and Suipacha used to be the site of the Israeli Embassy. On 17 March 1992 a terrorist bomb went off mid-afternoon killing 22 people and injuring more than 250. There is a tree planted in remembrance of each of the dead. Just across the street, the sound of childrens' laughter fills the air from a parochial school, which also suffered from the atrocity.
