On October 7, Marcelo and Diana Wasser, along with their grandson and son, spent twelve hours in a shelter, while members of the terrorist group, who had entered the kibbutz where they live, perpetrated a massacre.

La Nación covered a series of events and meetings hosted in Costa Rica and Panama by B’nai B’rith Argentina, featuring Marcelo and Diana Wasser, survivors of the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre.

Marcelo Wasser, 65, was against the iron door in the anti-missile shelter under his house. Inside that bunker, was his wife, Diana, 62; his son, 35, and his nine-month-old grandson. Outside, the unthinkable thing happened. More than 2,000 terrorists from the Hamas group entered Israeli territory. Missiles fell, while shots and explosions were heard through the small window of the shelter. In the WhatsApp group of the members of Kibbutz Nirim, 1.8 kilometers south of the Gaza Strip, where they live, the neighbors described in terror and in real time an invasion whose only objective was to massacre civilians.
