The Story of Yamit Region
The Story of Yamit Region – visitor center about the towns of the Yamit Region. The fascinating story of the Yamit Region finds itself breathing again. The official memorial site “The Story of Yamit Region” tells the story of the place returned to within the Egyptian borders in 1981 and was willingly evacuated by its residents, with their businesses and homes, for peace. The visitor center was established in the town of Dekel in Hevel Shalom, where six towns and 2 kibbutz settlements have been established with the evacuation of Yamit, for new settlement in the Negev. The visitor center is a magical nostalgic corner of pioneering, creativity, location pride, human and personal stories – for each visitor to experience in their own way. The historic importance of Yamit has brought Zehava Shaked, Tamar Shivat – who evacuated from Yamit and established Dekel – to commemorate the information center for the general public. The site offers the Yamit visitor center (museum), the Yamit Walls, the monument of the Steel Division, a peek into the life re-established and a tour of the greenhouse and galleries of artists of the area.
