The monument is located at the site where Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff was murdered on the Tel Aviv beach after trying to organize the immigration of German Jews and saving their property in contact with the Nazi regime. The suspicion of carrying out the murder fell on the revisionist movement, especially the Brit Habiryonim, founded by Abba Ahimeir. To this day, it is not known who killed Arlosoroff.

The following is the inscription on the memorial plaque next to the statue and taken on the same day as the cover:
In this place, Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff was murdered
On the evening of Friday 16 June 1933 (23 Sivan 5633) while serving as director of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency, the foreign minister of the "state to be"
Who was only 34 when was murdered Click for a larger image
