In everlasting memory of the children killed in the Holocaust, a new garden was dedicated by friends of KKL-JNF from Germany at the Ghetto Fighters Museum in Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot.


Beth Dotan, executive director of the Institute for Holocaust Education, welcomed the guests on behalf of the museum: "It is an honor to host you here today. Thanks to all the different things KKL-JNF has done for us, the museum is more beautiful, and it has become more special thanks to you. In the park you have helped to create, you can see children playing on the lawn and soldiers and other visitors sitting in the shade.KKL


"In the Warsaw Ghetto, there was a young girl named Mary Berg who kept a diary, and she described how spring came to the ghetto. Her family planted radishes, carrots, onions, even flowers. She tells about how they ate the first radish, and then writes that everything is green, and nature is beautiful, but it is as if they are forbidden to enjoy it. She says that 'even a little bit of green is so precious for us.' In the name of this little girl, who was not privileged to imagine a garden like this here in Israel, I want to thank you very much."
