A Demonstration in the White City

On Christmas eve 2013, some 10,000 asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan gathered in Levinsky Park. From there they marched in an orderly fashion to Ha’Aliya Street, and continued across downtown Tel Aviv, until they reached Rabin Square, where they gathered around Yigal Tomarkin’s looming statue, “Holocaust and Rebirth.” It seemed as if every monument along the way, the names of every street and building added meaning to the demonstration, and transformed these hapless refugees into yet another link in the chain of Tel Aviv’s history.
