title of the film THE FIGHTERS OF THE GHETTO is derived from the

was the custom during the austere immediate post-war years, on setting
up a new kibbutz people could afford only two brick structures,
a children's home and a cow-shed, whereas everything else was housed
in tents. The members of the Fighters of the Ghetto Kibbutz have
built a third brick structure to house all the Holocaust memorabilia
that each of them brought from Europe.
