The Golan archive

The archive periodically presents exhibitions on a variety of issues related to the Golan. Exhibitions are opened to the general public and are presented by the Golan Archives.You can find us on our website, Facebook page and Instagram. We upload fascinating materials from the archive shelves every day on all social networks.

The Golan Archive was established in 1989 by the Golan Regional Council and the Katzrin Local Council and is defined as an administrative and historical archive that has been documenting for over three decades the activities of the two councils, of  33 Golan communities as well as organizations such as the Golan Research Institute, and  the Golan communities, (Morag), Golan Rescue Unit, Israel Antiquities Authority and Gamla Reserve.

As you know, there is a division of personal archives in the golan archive.

Each year, the archive provides service to many applicants from Israel and around the world in learning about the Golan and in the process: students, students of all degrees, researchers, journalists, writers, military and security personnel, government offices and more.

The archive has a rich library of literature on the Golan, hundreds of information files, archives of the Golan settlements, a regional records center and a media room used for digitizing processes for archival materials and making them accessible to the public. Our team records and shoots community events in the Golan as well as records the Golan veterans in all communities.

Many archive materials have been digitized and made accessible to the public, including maps, images and documents scanned at high quality and accessed to the public through social networks, newsletters and more. In his vision, the archive aims to be a center for studying the history of the Golan and works to increase awareness of the special story of the Golan settlement, instilling local history on a variety of channels and forging connections with the community. The archive team consists of two permanent employees and a number of volunteers, and together we deal daily with many tasks, mainly the collection of archival material, the arrangement and registration of the material, documentation and service to the public.
