Sitting and holding her youngest sister, Haya Elisheva, whose blindness and multiple disabilities were a major factor in Malki developing a heightened sensitivity for special needs children like her sister.

Malki - the last photograph: 8th August 2001, Har Nof, Jerusalem. The evening before she was killed, Malki and a group of school friends celebrated the birthday of one of them in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighbourhood. This is a detail from the last snapshot taken of Malki. 8th August 2001.



Malki with her sister Haya-Elisheva, March 1997

When her mother's one-woman art exhibition opened in Jerusalem during Passover of 2001, Malki was there at the cocktail reception, smiling -- as always -- with her unstoppable joy and optimism.

Malki's cell phone was recovered from the devastated restaurant The police phoned to the Roth home immediately after the mourning week (the shiva) was over to say they had found Malki's cell phone in the wreckage of the Sbarro restaurant. Its ballistic nylon holder was shredded by the nails and other shrapnel; a nail and a fragment are at the right of the phone in this photo. On the phone itself, Malki had written: "Assur ledaber lashon harah"; a reminder (in Hebrew) to herself that it is improper to speak ill of other people.   Attending her mother's art exhibition in the Jerusalem Theatre, 2001
