David Palombo, a well-known Israeli sculptor, died here last night when a motor scooter which he was riding crashed into a chain road barrier on Mount Zion. He was in his early 30’s.
Mr. Palombo executed the impressive metal gates of the Tent of Remembrance at the Yad Vashem, the memorial to the martyrs of the holocaust, as well as the gates to the new Knesset Building which will be officially dedicated this fall. Only last week, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization awarded him a scholarship for study in Japan.
