"Netivot" – Booklet Issued by the Educational Farm for Girls in Petach Tikvah – Mid-1940s – References to the Holocaust and Illegal Immigration to Palestine
Netivot [Paths], a booklet issued by the educational farm for girls – Petach Tikvah. Printed in Tel Aviv, [ca. mid-1940s].
A booklet issued by the educational farm for girls in Petach Tikvah; handwritten and mimeographed, with illustrations. The booklet contains articles dealing with the experiences and recollections of the girls studying at the farm – leaving their parents' house, the studies, agricultural work in the farm, the forming of the group, the shared trips, arguments, and more – alongside passages of poetry and prose.
At the beginning of the booklet are texts dealing with the Holocaust, the illegal immigration to Palestine and the establishment of settlements in the Negev, including a poem about the Holocaust titled "The Echo of the Days" (Hebrew) and an article titled "The Voice of Brothers and Tortured" (Hebrew) dealing with the illegal immigration and ending with the call "We have had enough of life in the Diaspora, let us return to our country".
The educational farm for girls had presumably evolved from the "Female Workers Farm", established in Petach Tikvah in 1922 in order to teach young women agricultural work and train them in managing an independent agricultural farm.
