Signs series: History in pictures of Givat Haim

About the series

Historical background

Kibbutz Givat Haim was established in 1932 by graduates of the HaHalutz, Tchelet Lavan and Hashomer Hatzair movements from Europe. The kibbutz’s first name was "Kibbutz Hashomer Hatzair III", but a year later after the murder of Haim Arlozorov, its name was changed to Givat Haim after the murdered man. .
In this year (1933) the kibbutz had one concrete structure, several barracks and many tents , In the same year the hut was also erected which was the first dining room .
In the years 1933-1934, the 12-meter-high water tower was also erected and also served as an observation and defense post during the events of 1936-1939 (the Great Arab Revolt), and later during the War of Independence. The water tower stands still and is still used by the kibbutz these days (2021)
In 1941, the kibbutz houses were connected to the electricity grid
In 1952 there was a split in the kibbutz, and the members who belonged to the Ichud Hakvutzot and Kibutzim - Mapai established Kibbutz Givat Haim Ichud near the kibbutz. The original kibbutz that remained with the members belonging to the Kibbutz Hameuchad (Achdut HaVoda) became Givat Haim Meuhad.

About the signs

The rectangular signs are made of plastic (or similar material) and stand on pillars throughout the kibbutz. The signs show pictures of buildings and places in the history of the kibbutz. The signs are numbered so that there are at least 20 signs (according to the last number found on the website).
