In a touching ceremony filled with memory and hope, an ecological garden and community building was dedicated by Australian Anna Berger at Kibbutz Kramim in the Negev Desert in memory of the members of her family from the Kahan and Fixler families from Munkacs, Hungary who were murdered by the Nazis.
A joint project with JNF Australia and Anna Berger, who dedicated the garden in the presence of friends, family-- including cousin Rifka Junger who came especially from Vienna, Austria to attend the event--and Holocaust survivors from Munkacs, Tuviya Klein and Ze’ev Konigsberg, the community building and ecological garden is part of an Eco Trail which will wind itself along an existing river bed through the kibbutz residential living area.
Also attending were Shalom Norman, executive director of the Harry Triguboff Israel Institute for Conversion Policy at Beit Morasha, Udi Nathan from the B’nai Shimon Regional Council, Alex Abulafia, JNF State President of New South Wales and National Vice President of JNF Australia, and KKL-JNF Emissary to New South Wales Australia and Executive Director of JNF NSW Ygal Shapir.
