VIDEO - "On November 4th, 1995, the prime minister was murdered." This was the headline we awoke to, as if to  a nightmare. The three bullets fired at the prime minister during the peace rally changed the face of Israel forever. Each of us harbors that moment within us, the moment we heard of the murder at the square.

 

Twelve years on, the enhanced video now clearly shows the moments of the murder.

 

It was 9:40 pm, and the security personnel accompanied the participants of the peace rally down the back stairs of the municipality building on the way to the prime minister's car. At first, Foreign Minister Shimon Peres descended the staircase waving to the crowd with a smile. The prime minister descended next, with an assured step.

 


 

Suddenly out of the darkness the image appeared. The door of the prime minister's car had already been opened. Rabin approached the back seat; the first shot was sounded, then another and another.

 

Yitzhak Rabin's last steps were captured by the lens of Ronny Kempler's camera. Now, thanks to new technology, for the first time viewers can see exactly what happened at the square on that night: The unbearable ease in which the prime minister was murdered from point-blank range.
