Nariman House, one of the sites where terror struck last year this day, still screams loud of the bullet marks, hand grenades and rocket launchers that were exchanged at the Jewish complex that shook the closely-knit small community across the world.

The Chabad House, also known as Nariman House, was for the first time opened for the members of the Jewish community and media on Thursday to pay homage to the victims of 26/11.

Several portraits of Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka, who were among the six victims who lost their lives, have been portrayed in the by-lanes of Chabad House, closed to public on Thursday.

The scars and the eerie silence at the Jewish centre in the bustling street of Colaba is a testament of how much remains unchanged when Pakistani terrorists armed with weapons and explosives fanned the Nariman House paralysing the area for three days.

One is welcomed with a smiling photograph of the Rabbi and his wife, taken after their marriage, inside the entrance of the building.

Several things in the five-storey building have not yet been disposed including the mattress, library books, furniture and a dust settled pram of Baby Moshe.
