A wedding in the Poeppendorf DP camp in Germany. This was one of the camps to which illegal immigrants to Mandate Palestine from the ship "Exodus" were deported.
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.
