An anti - British demonstration in the Poeppendorf DP camp. The protesters are illegal immigrants to Palestine from the ship "Exodus" who were deported back to DP camps in Germany. The British flag has the symbol of the swastika eclipsing the Union Jack. Photographed in 1947.
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
