Sample text

Some Yemenites, man and women, were physically abused. Field owners and supervisors beat them for wrongdoings, large and small. A woman in the Petah-Tiqva colony, for instance, was brutally beaten and dragged over a field for collecting twigs for firewood (Druyan 1981, 106). In the colony Hadera, a farmer beat a Yemenite woman hard enough to damage her spinal cord and kill her (Afikim September 1990, 70). In Hadera again, a Yemenite guard was beaten in his sleep by his supervisors because they believed that he encouraged other guards to stop working: “The truth was that this man stopped working since he didn’t get paid for three months.

Yonatan Makov, a farmer from Rehovot (a city south of Tel Aviv), found three Yemenite women collecting twigs for firewood in his field. 15 Yemenite settlers outraged by this brutality and with the help of their few supporters generated sufficient pressure to take Makov to court. He was found guilty, but only assessed a small fine. In response to the verdict, Hapoel Hatzair wrote, “It is hard to agree that the punishment was as hard as the sin, but the trial within itself is a proof that we the people of Rehovot will not remain silent to such brutality” (Afikim September 1990, 68).

Further, this movie postulated that people who had spent their entire lives on Kibbutz Kinneret did not know much—if anything—about the history of the Yemenites there. When the 40-year-old daughter of an Ashkenazi settler was asked about Yemenite settlers, her response was, “The Yemenites, oh, I am not sure . . yes, I heard once or twice something about them but I don’t really know much. My parents never told me anything, and I guess I never asked” (The Unpromised Land 1993). In the late 1980s, members of Kibbutz Kinneret built a site commemorating its first pioneers, who they defined as solely the Ashkenazi settlers.
