Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Kibbutz Buchenwald was founded in Germany in 1945 by 16 survivors of Buchenwald concentration camp. The Zionist training farm was organized to prepare Jews for emigration to Palestine. One of the founders was Yeohezkel Tydor, the author's father, who died in 1993. Baumel's narration of the kibbutz's history is divided into two sections. Part one examines the kibbutz from its creation until the departure of the founding group to Palestine in late summer 1945. Part two traces the kibbutz's subsequent history in Palestine and Germany, from the autumn of 1945 until the mid-1950s. Kibbutz Buchenwald was abolished in Germany in 1948; the kibbutz as it was founded in what is now Israel--named Netzer Sereni--still exists today. The story of these pioneers and their physical, psychological, ideological, and political struggles forms the nucleus of this absorbing book. George Cohen

kibbutz Buchenwald became kibbutz netser sereni. at the age of 4 in 1953 I moved with my family to kibbutz netser sereni. I lived there until 1973, and just before turning 24 I left the kibbutz. over the years of living there, schooling and dealing with the founders of the kibbutz I got some information about them and how they started the kibbutz. of all the names in this book i recognized 15 names of people i knew personally. but most of what I got from this book was not known to me. this book plugged a big gap in the knowledge that I had about the formation of the kibbutz and their life prior to establishing it. there is no doubt that a lot of kibbutzim who started by ww2 survivors could be similar, but having to grow up in that specific kibbutz just makes it all the more realistic for me. thank you ms. baumel for writing this book. unfortunately I only found out about it recently. but better late than never. I would like to give it four and a half stars but amazon did not perfect that feature yet.
