Architecture

The story of the Ghetto Fighters’ HouseMuseumand of its founders is a historical, cultural, and social phenomenon unique among Holocaust museums in Israeland throughout the world.

The unique nature of the place lies in its primacy, in its being a project that was thought of and put up by a group of young people who had fought against the Nazis and survived the horrors of the Holocaust. When laying the foundation for their kibbutz home, they also laid the foundation for commemoration and remembrance as an educational asset and mission.

 

The Museum’s Renovation

The goal of the GHF Museum’s renovation and remodeling plan is to architecturally and conceptually maintain the intentions of its founders and adapt them to modern concepts of museum development, through its design and through the integration of new insights from research in the various fields of study.

GFH’s Master Plan

From the architect’s statement: ““It was the vow of the members of Kibbutz Lohamei Haghetaot to build a house, not a museum or a monument, that would be dedicated to preserving the history as a continuum between past and present, to heal the rift between the pioneering that faces forward and the memory that looks back – and above all, to emphasize the vital connection between the personal story and that of the group. ..”
