כפר ויתקין

בית יד לבנים
הבית נבנה בשנת 1952 כדי להנציח את בני הכפר שנפלו במערכות ישראל.
בטקס הנחת אבן הפינה נכח ראש הממשלה דאז, דוד בן-גוריון. באגף השמאלי הוקם חדר הבנים בו מוצגות תמונות הנופלים. האגף המרכזי נקבע כאולם כנסים וישיבות ובאגף הימני הייתה הספריה.
ב 1979 הועברה הספריה למקומה החדש ובמקומה הוקם ארכיון הכפר.

Kfar Vitkin

Yad Labanim House
The house was built in 1952 to commemorate the villagers who fell in the Israeli battles.
The then Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, was present at the cornerstone-laying ceremony. In the left wing, the boys’ room was set up, where pictures of the fallen are displayed. The main wing was designated as a conference and meeting hall and on the right wing was the library.
In 1979 the library was moved to its new location and in its place the village archive was established.
