From Keren Setton
The HDSA Habonim Dror Southern African History Project aims to collect, archive and honour the history of Habonim Dror in Southern Africa since 1930.
The project has exciting goals, including:
- a multi-media exhibition that will be permanently installed on the HDSA Onrus campsite, telling the history of HDSA and serving as an educational tool for the chanichim;
- an online platform that will digitize and archive the history of HDSA, and connect ex-members from around the world; and
- a coffee table book which will be published for HDSA’s 90th anniversary in 2020.
The organisers are appealling to ex-members of Habonim Dror Southern Africa to donate or loan precious memorabilia to the project so that they can digitize, index and protect HDSA’s history forever. These mementos will be stored on an online database in an easily accessible format, enabling members from all over the world to share and enjoy, as well as possibly being included in the coffee table book and permanent exhibition.
If you have photographs, vdeos, stories, articles, uniforms, t-shirts, interviews, publications or any other memorabilia related to HDSA that you would like to add to the History Project collection, please contact Keren Setton at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
