June 1, 2001 – Aleksei Lupalu, 16, of the Ukraine, was one of 21 people killed in a suicide bombing at a Tel-Aviv discotheque shortly before midnight on Friday night.
Aleksei was killed only six months after arriving in Israel with his family from the Ukraine. They are not Jewish, but came to work in Israel to save money, hoping to improve their financial situation and then to return home.
Aleksei is survived by his parents, Lova and Ivan, and by his older sister. His family announced their decision to return to the Ukraine, where Aleksei was buried.
Israel's Voice commitment to memorialize each victim of terror doesn't end here. We are currently reaching out to those who have been victimized and to every family who's lost loved one(s) due to terror. Your story must be told and we intend to create a documentary for each individual. Silence is no longer an option. Contact us today to set up an appointment. firstname.lastname@example.org Our preference is to make your story heard in English, but Hebrew is also fine. Videos will be subtitled for the world to understand.
