ZUMU’s first site was established in the site of an abandoned field school in Yeruham, an industrial city in the Negev desert with a population largely comprised of immigrants from the FSU, north Africa and Ethiopia. The museum, which was constructed in and around an abandoned field school, was attended by close to 100% of the local population (10,000 individuals) as well as thousands of visitors from surrounding villages and kibbutzim. We are still in close contact with our project partners in Yeruham and work with them to continue the legacy of ZUMU in their community.
