Yankel Rosenbaum
Birth: unknown, Australia
Death: Aug. 19, 1991
New York, USA

Yankel Rosenbaum was a 29 year old University of Melbourne student from Australia who was in the U.S. conducting research for his doctorate when he was killed in The Crown Street Riots in Brooklyn new York. He was on his way to get a hair cut when approx. twenty young men approached him and stabbed him several times in the back and severely beat him fracturing his skull. Before dying that night he was able to identify one of them, a 16 year old. The 16 year old was charged with murder and acquitted but later was convicted of violating Yankel's civil rights.

♥ Shalom Yankel, I pray that there will one day be at day when civil rights will be a thing of the past, when all people can live as one ♥
