The Katif Center Archive is a documentary archive established at the initiative of the Gush Katif Committee in 2007 in order to preserve the story of the 35 years of Jewish life in the Gaza Strip in the modern state of Israel.
In 2008 the Knesset passed the law to preserve the heritage of Gush Katif and the northern Shomron, and the archive became part of “the Center” which operates under the Prime Minister’s Office.
The archive is the basis for the whole story of Gush Katif’s past. The archive was built such that it enables us to preserve documents, parts of newspapers, movies, pictures, ads and publications, and visual displays in the most professional way.
The archive provides material for projects initiated by the Katif Center, and provides a solution for the general public, researchers and the various media.
The archive is under the guidance of the State Archives and the Association of Archivists and meets the standards required for the preservation of archival material.
