Demonstrators on the deck of the illegal immigration ship, "Knesset Yisrael."
They are protesting their impending deportation from the shores of Mandate Palestine to the British detention camps on Cyprus.
In the photo: a placard, in English, warning of reprisals in response to any further casualties resulting from British actions. The text: "For every Jew who is murdered or wounded aboard this ship - you will pay with English blood! You have been warned!"
Photographed in late November, 1946.
