Israeli Left Archive

The website Israeli Left Archive, originally built and stored in the Kaminer home in Jerusalem, is now hosted by the IISH. The materials in this archive were collected by Dafna and Reuven Kaminer and the website itself was built by their granddaughter, Carmel.

Groups Covered

The Israeli Left Archive is devoted mainly to the radical left and the women's peace movement in Israel during the sixties, seventies and the eighties. It is in this period, immediately preceding the introduction of computer technologies, that the bulk of the Kaminer collection was gathered. They stopped collecting material towards the end of the eighties mainly due to the spread of computerized documentation throughout society and the left. From the early nineties, the preservation and the recovery of movement materials became a vastly simpler goal.

The basic categorization is based on the different groups active in the radical left: Women in Black - Shani - Reshet: Israel Women's Peace Net - Women and Peace - SIAH (Israeli New Left) - SHASI (Israel Socialist Left) - Committee for Solidarity with Birzeit University - Committee Against the War in Lebanon - Matzpen - Dai L'Kibbush - Campus - Yesh Gvul - 21st Year - Black Panthers (Israel) - Electoral Initiatives - Movement for Peace and Security - Left Zionists.
