Anita Lisman, 25, was murdered by Hamas terrorists while fleeing the Supernova music festival on October 7.

She is survived by her parents, Kira and Michael, and a brother, Ariel.

Anita grew up in the Nir Aviv neighborhood of Tel Aviv, and in 2017 enlisted in the IDF, where she served in the Intelligence Unit 8200, including as a reservist after finishing her mandatory army service.

She met her boyfriend, Segev Shushan, while studying business management at the night school of College of Management Academic Studies in Rishon Lezion. She also worked as a customer service manager at a chain of women’s gyms.

In July 2023, just a few months before the massacre, the two moved in together in an apartment in Modiin.

Anita and Segev attended the Supernova festival together and were gunned down in their car by Hamas terrorists while trying to flee after the rocket fire began. Her body and that of Segev were only identified several days later, and the two were buried next to one another in the Modiin cemetery.

A memorial Instagram account set up for those who were murdered on October 7 showed several pictures of the happy couple in the weeks and months before the catastrophe. Kissing in a light snowfall, lounging at a picnic in a field of anemones, posing in a selfie outside a hotel, and side to side just before a costume party, with Anita in a Pikachu costume.

Loved ones described her as a young woman full of life, who loved good restaurants, dancing, making her friends smile, and tucking into a nice creme brulee.

In an Instagram post, Anita’s college wrote that she was “full of joy, mischievous and funny, with a giant smile from ear to ear.”

Friend Ofri Tahal said that Anita was “funny, full of smiles, and sensitive with beautiful blue eyes that you couldn’t miss.” Ofri described Anita as always being there when you needed a shoulder to lean on, or when you wanted to laugh or go out and have a good time.

On Facebook, her friend Oriyan Nadav said she had no idea where to begin, how to describe who Anita was.

“You were and always will be a beautiful, pure angel will a heart full of giving and love that always wanted only to help out and make sure that everything was OK.”
