We have all heard stories about the hardships that early settlers had to face when they arrived in the Land of Israel in the late 19th century. But do we really understand what they went through?
For a graphic, gripping description of those first pioneer years and the revolution that changed the face of Israeli settlement, your best bet is the First Aliyah Museum in Zichron Ya’acov. Located in a historic building in the center of the city’s oldest section, the museum tells the story of the earliest modern-day immigration to the country. Short movies, multimedia exhibits and displays teach who these pioneers were, what life was really like in the wilderness where they landed, how they suffered and how some of them, at least, persevered.
