An important resource less official than Yad Vashem but with very sound archival resources with when you make an appointment a personal archivist. The librarians are particularly helpful, especially when one cannot read Hebrew and collect books and deliver them to one's study desk. The photos just show how senseless it all was..and here and there how few perpetrators answered and paid for their inhumanity. They have art work of Malva Schalek..who was murdered for standing by her beliefs...some outstanding portraits..the quotations of the fighters about not leaving their women and children to save themselves by going into the forest..shows how principled some were...do we measure up in comparison...it's why the Museum must prosper for many years to come.

About us

“We came here to build homes filled with life”   

The Ghetto Fighters' House – Itzhak Katzenelson Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Heritage Museum– known as the “House” – is not only the first Holocaust museum in the world but also the first of its kind to be founded by Holocaust survivors.  Since its establishment in 1949, the museum tells the story of the Holocaust during World War II, emphasizing the bravery, spiritual triumph and the incredible ability of Holocaust survivors and the fighters of the revolt to rebuild their lives in a new country about which they had dreamed – the State of Israel. 

The Ghetto Fighters’ House gives evidence to the founders’ vision.  Having to put behind them the grief and the horror, they chose to come to the Western Galilee in order to build a flourishing kibbutz – the Ghetto Fighters’ Kibbutz – and the museum located within the community. 

In light of this vision, the Ghetto Fighters’ House provides its visitors, both from Israel and abroad, a unique experience, going beyond the grief and horror in order to make evident Antek Zukerman’s declaration in the first National Gathering for Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day that took place on the Ghetto Fighters’ Kibbutz:  “We came here to build homes filled with life.”
