Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, Upper Galilee, IsraelSde Nehemia article(Misc)(Photos Taken: 27-Oct-2017)
Plaque Wording: An excerpt from an article in HaAretz newspaper. Reporter: M. Samilanski One cloudy, cold and wet day as I was riding across the muddy trails and tracks of the Hula Valley, suddenly, in a blink of an eye what did I see? Was I dreaming? Witnessing a magical vision? At the confluence of the three streams: Dan, Hatzbani and Banias - where they form the river Jordan, I spot a small encampment on the riverbank. . Three canvas tents, three shelters (succot, almost) made from the reeds so common to the Hula, they looked almost like huge rugs; two Hebrew girls jumping around between the tents. Who are they? What are they doing alone, up here, a mere arrow shot from the Syrian border? No, they are not alone. There are 8 young men with them. A singular minyan in the swamps of the Hula. They are illegals. As far as the authorities are concerned, the budget-holders who control the purse strings, the land has been allocated to them but the funds have not been approved. They made Aliya anyway. This minyan is part of the kibbutz group called Huliot. Only four months previously, in December 1940, mid-winter, they made their way to this spot and settled in the middle of the Hula marshes: no roof over their heads and no road to connect them to the rest of the surrounding settlements. Independently, unauthorised, they ploughed and planted more than 1,000 dunams (250 acres). And the heavens responded. Crops were successful. I have never witnessed a more beautiful, inspiring sight. There has been nothing to compare to that beautiful scene.
March 1941

Plaque Wording: Huliot Plastics - The Grain Store This building, characterised by its convex roof, was put up in 1945 to be used as the grain silo for grains such as barley, wheat, sorghum, corn and seed.

Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, Upper Galilee, IsraelSde Nehemia Pillbox(Misc)(Photos Taken: 24-Oct-2017)
Plaque Wording: The Pillbox
This building was erected in 1941 by the British army and served as the northern-most look-out post for the kibbutz. Until the War of Independence (1948-49) members of the kibbutz used the position to guard and protect the kibbutz. The structure and its shape allowed for a full 360 degree view of the surrounding area.
During the 1956 Suez Campaign (Operation Kadesh in Israel), when there was a threat of attack from Syria, the building was used for aircraft spotting and defence. Access to the Pillbox was through a network of trenches that connected the whole kibbutz in those days as the Syrians held positions overlooking Shamir, Kfar Szold and Dan at the foot of the Golan Heights and this allowed them clear views of the settlements in the area.

Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, Upper Galilee, IsraelSde Nehemia Swedish Hut(Misc)(Photos Taken: 30-Oct-2017)
Plaque Wording: The Swedish HutThis hut was erected in 1951 and renovated in 2011. The hut, along with the adjacent concrete building, was originally used as a Childrens House where there were bedrooms, a kitchen and dining room and a classroom. Days of collective living?. The first group to grow up here was called Nachlielli (a kind of wagtail). Class groups in kibbutzim traditionally were named after birds or animals, but most commonly, birds.
Nachlielli was made up of the first children of the kibbutz and newcomers to Sde Nehemia, orphaned children from the then Czechoslovakia, Syria and Lebanon. Many kibbutz children, between 1952 and 1978, lived and were taught in this hut. This was their home.
With the change to family living the hut ceased to be lived in and became a store room for children’s playthings, Purim costumes and other equipment used in Children’s Houses.
The building next door was used as a music room for many years and today houses the kibbutz archives.

Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, Upper Galilee, IsraelSde Nehemia Watchtower(Misc)(Photos Taken: 25-Oct-2017)

Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, Upper Galilee, IsraelSde Nehemia Water Tower(Misc)(Photos Taken: 30-Oct-2017)
Plaque Wording: The Water Tower The water tower was erected in 1941 and delivered water to all the various parts of the kibbutz. In 1948 the tower served as a look-out point. Here, girls would observe and pass on information to the local Hagana leadership based in nearby kibbutz Kfar Giladi. They used Morse code, mirrors to reflect the sun in the daytime and powerful spotlights and torches at night to transmit their information.
In 1960, during the Fedayeen attacks common at the time, girls would sit, observing, with binoculars, the Syrian lines. If they saw men leaving the caves with their flocks, spreading across the hill slopes, they knew there was no danger and the kibbutz could go about its daily routines in safety.
On feast days and holidays the national flag is flown from the tower and until recently (2010) the Red Flag was flown on Mayday.
