Gordonia (youth Movement) - History

Founded in 1925 in Poland, the movement promoted aliyah to kibbutzim in Mandate Palestine during the inter-war period. These pioneering initiatives were crucial in the development of the kibbutz movement in Palestine and the state of Israel as a whole.

Being established after many of the other socialist Zionist movements, Gordonia, in its early years struggled existentially. Emerging from ideological crisis, Gordonia was seen as a reaction against the fatal errors of movements such as the Hashomer whom they viewed as adopting ‘foreign ideals’ (e.g. Marxism) which threatened to divert attention from the important historical pioneering task. Gordonia saw itself as the pioneering youth movement of the Jewish masses – rejecting theoretical ideals of socialism and romanticism in favour of practical pioneering as embodied in Gordon himself. The principal distinction between Gordonia and the other movements was its decision not to engage in political activities (in alignment with the philosophies of their figurehead).

The United States branch of Gordonia was small and largely based in the Washington D.C.-Baltimore and Dallas areas, with only one summer camp, Moshava, near Annapolis. The group merged with the Labor Zionist youth movement Habonim in April 1938.

GORDONIA HISTORY

There are not many places that echo the story of Israel in a clear, distinct voice there are only a few where the visitor can tune into the past while totally enjoying the present. The new Gordonia Hotel at Kibbutz Ma’ale Hahamisha is one of these rare places. Acquaint yourself with the green, tranquil setting – the enchantment and tremendous pull of the landscape of the Jerusalem Hills, along with the roots, struggles, the desire for a tranquil life, the bond with the land, the vineyards, forests and hills – and you will understand the story of Israel.

Hidden Histories of Gordonia: Land Dispossession and Resistance in the Northern Cape, 1800–1990, is the last, posthumous work of one of South Africa’s foremost “radical” or revisionist historians, Martin Legassick (1940–2016). It takes the form of a number of essays on the history of an arid frontier region of the Cape to the north of the Orange River. When reading them, it is important to heed Legassick’s words in the preface to the volume. He conceived of them as being part of an exercise in “‘applied history,’ that is to say, historical writing with a direct application to people’s lives in the present” (xviii–xix). But this is not the book that Legassick initially wanted to write. That would have been, in his words, “a full local history of Gordonia from the time of its settlement by Basters in the 1870s.
