Comments:
Sign number 1 from signs scattered throughout the kibbutz, describing the history of the kibbutz

The siege of which the sign is referring to was imposed by the British Mandate authorities on the kibbutz after blowing up British radar stations that detected the illegal ships and a British police station in Givat Olga. The day after the explosion, a siege was imposed on the kibbutz in an attempt to find those responsible for the explosions. While the "Haganah" forces tried to enter the Kibbutz, the British opened fire. As a result, 8 "Haganah" members were killed and 42 were injured.

Translation of the text on the sign:
The entrance to the kibbutz
"... On July 14, 1932, four of us left the Hadera settlement in a wagon loaded with work tools and food for one day. We cut down some trees from the grove that adorned the plot and said here would be the entrance to the kibbutz..." (from the book Givat Chaim)
