June 11, 2003 – Bianca Rivka Shichrur, 62 of Jerusalem was one of 17 people killed in a suicide bombing on bus No. 14A on Jaffa Road in the center of Jerusalem.
At around 17:30 the bomber dressed as an ultra-Orthodox Jew boarded Egged bus No. 14A at the Mahane Yehuda market and a short while later as the bus drove down Jaffa Road near the Davidka Square detonated his bomb wrecking the bus and killing 16 of its passengers. Over 100 people were wounded including dozens of passersby. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
Bianca Shichrur, nee Kauders, was born in Italy and immigrated to Israel in 1969. Here she married Emmanuel who died in 1985. She had retired after many years at the Ministry of the Interior. Her family described her as a happy and warmhearted person who was devoted to her grandchildren and to her neighbors’ children who called her grandmother.
Bianca was closely involved in the Italian community in Jerusalem and had many albums filled with photos from her visits to Italy, especially of synagogues. She swam and worked out regularly.
Bianca Rivka Shichrur was buried in Jerusalem. She is survived by two children and three grandchildren.
