On February 12, 1942, in a small room in an apartment building on 8 Mizrahi Bet Street in Florentin, Tel Aviv, an event took place that some historians suggest may have triggered a chain of events that drove the British out of the Land of Israel, leading to the establishment of the Jewish state.Avraham “Yair” Stern, founder of the Jewish Freedom Fighters Movement (Lehi), also known as the Stern Group, was shot three times from behind by British police. Dead at age 35, he left behind a pregnant widow, Roni, and a band of young Jewish warriors who could now rely only on Stern’s poetry, vision and force of personality for continued inspiration in their fight for the Jewish homeland.
