The Ghetto Fighters’ House was the first Holocaust Museum in the world and among the first of its kind to be established by Holocaust survivors. It was established in 1949 and ever since then has been telling the story of the Holocaust with an emphasis on the bravery, spiritual triumph and incredible ability of Holocaust survivors and resistance fighters to rebuild their lives in the State of Israel. In fact, the Museum is located in the Ghetto Fighters’ Kibbutz; the flourishing Kibbutz built by Holocaust survivors and resistance fighters. Alongside the Museum is the Center for Humanistic Education which aims to instill knowledge and understanding of the events that took place during the Holocaust through dialogue and joint learning. Multi-cultural gatherings are held there which include intensive discussions on the human and universal meaning of the Holocaust within and beyond Israeli society. In addition, the Yad Layeled Children’s Memorial Museum was established in 1995 at the Ghetto Fighters’ House with the goal of commemorating the memory of the Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. The children’s museum aims to bring to life the world of children who lived during the Holocaust for young visitors so that they can explore the subject of the Holocaust in an age-appropriate manner.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
