A Children's House In The Name Of Our Murdered Community

The Krynker Committeee in Israel had the idea to perpetuate the memory of our community with an institutional monument that would carry its name and at the same time serve as a point of renewal and vibrant life.

After much deliberation, we accepted the proposal of the general workers' organization “Histadrut” [The Jewish Agency] in Israel to build a children's house in a newly settled kibbutz, Rosh Hanikrah, located at the Lebanonese border.  The kibbutz was being settled by young immigrant survivors, who had just arrived from refugee camps in Europe.  There were already a few children there, but without a specially maintained building for them.  

With “Histadrut's” help and the Krynker landsmanshaften in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Israel the children's house was built at the kibbutz and it is now full of happiness and high spirits.
