About 1,000 people gathered in Hebron on Aug. 19 to commemorate a 1929 massacre of 67 Jews. There were about 800 Jews living in Hebron before the surprise Arab attack, which also wounded about 70. After the massacre, survivors hid for three days in the local British police outpost before being expelled from the city. Some Jews returned to the city in 1931 but were expelled again in 1936.
