Kibbutz Lochamei Hageta'ot was founded in 1949 by survivors of the German, Polish, and Lithuanian Jewish ghettos set up by the Nazis. To commemorate their compatriots who perished in the Holocaust, the kibbutz members set up the Ghetto Fighters' House Museum, which you enter to the right of the main gate. Exhibits include photographs documenting the Warsaw Ghetto and the famous uprising, and halls devoted to different themes, among them that of the Jewish communities
before their destruction in the Holocaust; the death camps; and deportations at the hands of the Nazis. You can also see the booth in which Adolf Eichmann, architect of the "Final Solution," sat during his Jerusalem trial.
In a cone-shaped building, the adjacent Yad Layeled (Children's Memorial) is dedicated to the memory of the 1½ million children who perished in the Holocaust. It's designed for young visitors, who can begin to comprehend the events of the Holocaust through a series of tableaux and images accompanied by recorded voices, allowing them to identify with individual victims without seeing shocking details. There is a small cafeteria on the premises. The site is 2 km (1 mile) north of Akko on Route 4.
