A mobile application “A People Remembers” documenting memorials of terror victims in Israel is being launched for the upcoming 2018 Israel’s Memorial Day, “A People Remembers” is a project in memory of Asaf Zur who was killed in a terror attack in Haifa in the bombing of city bus 37 on March 5th, 2003.
The application documents about 700 different memorials and commemorations, each month more memorial sites are added when families build new ones or when new sites are discovered.
With a map of Israel the user can find memorials anywhere in Israel or around his position, in the list view the user can also search for specific memorials.
The application is available for IOS devices, iPhone or iPad and also for all Android devices.
In the application the user can lay a flower and leave the victim’s family a personal message.
With the start of spring and summer the application gives added value by giving information on memorials the user stumbles upon or goes to visit.
The map also shows the history of the struggle against terror in Israel in the last 100 years. The memorials show where attacks took place, in the fifties around the Gaza strip, in the sixties in the Hula valley and in last years at the center of the cities suffering from suicide bombings.
The application was created as a natural extension to the Web site created 12 years ago with the same name, at www.ezy.co.il , now with the advancement of technology and move to mobile devices a mobile application was needed.
The application lets the user contact us, whether to leave feedback, notify about a new memorial or lay a flower on an existing memorial. While the application first purpose is to share the info that exists, and show the memorials to the public, emphasize was put on allowing the users to give feedback and hence have bidirectional communication at all times.
