Beit Theresienstadt

Beit Theresienstadt at Kibbutz Givat Chaym Ichud was erected in memory of the Jews of Ghetto Theresienstadt who perished during the Nazi persecution.

The corner stone was laid in 1969 and the official opening was in 1975.

The "Theresienstadt Martyrs Remembrance Association" built this edifice through the initiative of the surviving members of the Zionist Youth Movement and the "Hechalutz" organization living in Israel.

Not a mute monument but a living and active institution.
