    Event History
    Kibbutz Nili was a Zionist agricultural collective established on the 350- acre former estate of Nazi propagandist and war criminal Julius Streicher in Pleikersdorf, Germany. Founded on December 8, 1945, the name of the kibbutz was taken from the initials of the Zionist motto "Netzach Yisrael Lo Yishaker" (The eternity of Israel will not lie), but it was often humorously referred to as Streichershof. The kibbutz successfully raised crops and livestock. Because of its location just outside of Nuremberg, it was a frequent stop for visitors attending sessions of the International Military Tribunal.
