"Yoman" – Journal of the Buchenwald Kibbutz (Netzer Sereni) – Collection of Issues and Drafts, 1948-1951
Twenty-seven issues and drafts of the journal of the Buchenwald Kibbutz, "Yoman" (Diary), printed and handwritten. 1948-1951 (most of them from 1948).
The Buchenwald Kibbutz was the first name of the kibbutz Netzer Sereni. It was established in 1948 by a handful of survivors of the Buchenwald concentration camp and was built during the Israeli War of Independence and the establishment of the State. The sixteen founders of the Kibbutz documented their story in a special journal titled "Yoman" (Diary).
This is a collection of issues and drafts – mimeographed, typewritten or handwritten (some containing corrections and erasures), documenting the early days of the Kibbutz: "In the yard we set up tents. We chose a guard for the night. Today was the first of our independence… we bought dishes for the kitchen, a gas oven and a pair of bicycles… this small household is the beginning of our Kibbutz" (from the first issue, 30.1.1948).
The issues and drafts are numbered 1-5, 7-16, 73, and 75-78 (two of the 1948 drafts are not numbered). Some of the drafts in the collection are of the same issue.
Size and condition vary.
Enclosed: a list of kibbutz members from 1969 (9 leaves, more than 300 names); an invitation to an evening of lectures at the kibbutz; several additional handwritten and typewritten leaves.
