A certificate for "#133," an illegal immigrant to Palestine who had sailed on the ship "Exodus." The text reads, in Hebrew and English: "... is an illegal immigrant from the Exodus who was returned to Germany by force from the port of Haifa and is in exile on the way back to the Land of Israel". Issued on October 28, 1947 in the Poeppendorf DP camp, to which the "Exodus" passengers were sent.
Note: the illegal immigration ship "Exodus" (Hebrew name: "Flight from Europe 5707" - the year 1947) was apprehended by British forces as it reached Palestine. Following a battle on deck, the refugees were forcibly shipped back to France, then Germany. Close
