Remembering Gush Katif

Posted by on August 5, 2011

the "Orange Spirit" lives on!

How to remember the past?

As the sixth memorial marking Gush Katif’s destruction nears, this question becomes increasingly important. There are those who wish to commemorate the struggle to prevent the Disengagement. Some of these people continue wearing orange bracelets and flying orange banners. Orange – the color of the Gush Katif struggle. Others will insert the word ‘orange’ into every phrase, and talk continuously about ‘the orange spirit’.

Another way of remembering the past is by ensuring that the future generation knows what happened. Each year, a new generation of young children are taken to Kissufim Junction, which is as close to Gush Katif as the army now allows civilians, where they take an oath not to forget Gush Katif. This makes them part of the communal longing for their former home.

A third way of commemoration lies in action. Some choose to plant trees in a grove named after Gush Katif  located by Kissufim junction. Some choose to light a memorial candle.  Yet others prefer to recite specially composed lamentations.  Many go through old family photo albums, or watch films.

No matter which way one chooses, there is no doubt that it only serves as a temporary painkiller until the time when it is no longer necessary because the wound will be healed; we will be back.
