June 19, 2002 – Tatiana Igelski, 43 of Moldova was one of seven people killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a crowded bus stop and hitchhiking post at the French Hill intersection in northern Jerusalem shortly after 7:00 P.M.
The bomber jumped out of a car at the French Hill junction and as Border Patrolmen on duty at the scene began to approach him, he ran past them toward the crowded bus stop on the eastern side of the road setting off the bomb he was carrying in a crowd of people. Three Israelis and four others died in hospital. About 50 were wounded by shrapnel that was packed around the explosive, with several in critical and serious condition, including one of the Border Patrolmen who had tried to stop the bomber.
Tatiana Igelski was in Jerusalem visiting her son who immigrated to Israel and serves in the army. “Tatiana’s heart was divided between Moldova and Israel,” said her childhood friend Larissa Colton.
Dima Igelski has yet to decide whether to bury his mother here or send her body back to Moldova where she lived with her 15 year-old daughter – who just celebrated her 15th birthday.
