Chavka Folman Raban – the “human spirit” of Ghetto Fighters’ House

Chavka Folman Raban, who passed away on January 9th, was an exemplary figure who embodied, through her personality, the spirit of Ghetto Fighters’ House. At this moment of parting, before her image, which lives within us, is transformed into a symbol in our collective memory – it is important to remember who she was first and foremost – Chavka the human being.

Ghetto Fighters’ House is launching two new projects to complement the exhibition “The Jews of Holland during the Holocaust”

This year, Ghetto Fighters’ House is holding an event devoted to civilian bravery and cultural creativity in occupied Holland and in the Westebork camp. Writing and creativity were means used by individuals to oppose evil and to fight against Nazism and all it represented. The event will take place in the presence and under the auspices of His Excellence, Casper Veldkamp, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Israel. A performance of “Serenade to Westebork” by composer and lyricist Koby Luria will be presented. The program deals with culture, creativity and humor in extreme circumstances.

New exhibition: "Here Began My Childhood"

The new exhibition in the temporary exhibition space complements the collective biographies and recounts what happened to child survivors at the end of the war and in its aftermath.

The exhibition highlights additional human and historical aspects which shaped the fate of these children and which, till now, have not received due attention in Holocaust remembrance educational programs.

From destruction to hope: a parting letter from a cousin

On January 27, 2014 Ghetto Fighters’ House will hold a ceremony to mark International Holocaust Day. During the ceremony, which will be dedicated to the Jews of Holland, Beit Joles will donate to the archives the last letter written by a Jew in the Westebork camp on the day before his deportation to Auschwitz. Jansje [Jannie] Paul, to whom the letter was addressed, guarded the letter throughout her life. When she moved to Beit Joles, the Dutch senior citizens home in Haifa, she took it with her. Jansje passed away in 2000 and the letter was discovered in 2013 in Beit Joles. After it was translated into Hebrew and research was conducted, the writer was identified: he was Joachim Sanders, Jansje’s cousin on her mother’s side.

Reflections on 18 Years as Director of the Center for Humanistic Education

Eighteen years have flown by since I came to the Ghetto Fighters’ House with the idea of establishing a “Center for Humanistic Education.” The idea had sprouted in my head during a sabbatical year when I worked as a volunteer at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington in its second year, 1993-1994. Till today, the American Holocaust Museum considers the Center for Humanistic Education as a collaborative organization.
