On the sign:
"... העברנו את המטבח למקלט הגדול, אשר בו היתה גם המרפאה. בישלנו בחפירה עמוקה ומוגנת ליד המקלט, שהיתה מוסתרת מעיני האויב, ואפשרה לעובדים במקרה של התקפה להיכנס מיד למקלט ... קיימנו, כרגיל, ’מחזור’ של 4-5 ארוחות ביום, כמעט כמו בבית הבראה."

Translation of the text on the sign:
"... we moved the kitchen to the large shelter, where the clinic was also located. We cooked in a deep excavation near the shelter, which was hidden from the eyes of the enemy, and allowed the workers in the event of an attack to enter the shelter immediately... We held, as usual, a ’cycle’ of 4-5 meals During the day, almost like in a sanatorium."

Haim L., Yemi Gesher
