Gush Etzion Heritage Center Museum

The Path to Israel's Independence

hush

 

The Heritage Center Museum details the heroic six-month battle fought against invading Arab armies while under blockade during Israel’s War of Independence. Nearly 250 people were killed in the final assault on Gush Etzion and hundreds more were taken as POWs just one day before David Ben Gurion declared Israel’s independence. Nineteen years later, after the Six Day War, the Bnei Etzion(the children of those who fought and died) returned to reestablish their community and created a memorial in the very spot where their parents hid during the final attack.
