Maria Tagilchev


June 1, 2001 - Maria Tagilchev, 14, of Netanya, was one of 21 people killed in a suicide bombing at a Tel-Aviv discotheque shortly before midnight on Friday night.

Maria immigrated to Israel from the Ural Mountains in Russia a year and a half ago with her mother, Olga.

Maria was an eighth-grader at the ORT Leibovich school, and was still having trouble with Hebrew, but had many friends. Just two days before, a car bomb exploded outside her school, while she was still inside. She decided to go to the Dolphin disco on Friday night to relieve the tension.

Maria was buried in Netanya.
