Two years ago the Municipality of Tel-Aviv razed the historic 54 year-old Gordon swimmingpool without any prior warning. The pool, placed not far from Gordon-beach was the popular pool for the old bohemians of Tel-Aviv; the salt water was demarcated by lush lawns, which would offer a beautiful view of the valley.
The forceful manner by which the municipality has conducted itself,
without any manners or sensitivity of the historic vallue for the place and its customers (some more then 40 years!!), is revolting.
A few weeks ago I watched a 20 minutes raw cut of a documentary about the last two years of this historic pool, made by the film-director Ronen Schechner: it is moving, heart-breaking; Gordon pool was for this people their home.
Ronen is looking for sponsor to finish this important documentary about a historic place in Tel-Aviv. I really do hope, that he will find some funds soon.
