By Air, Land, and Sea: Aliyah under the British Mandate
Dramatic stories of Jews from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Iraq who overcame great obstacles to reach the Land of Israel.
Toldot Yisarel presents the dramatic stories of Jews from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Iraq who overcame great obstacles in their efforts to reach the Land of Israel. For 2,000 years, Jews around the world dreamed about returning to the Land of Israel. But the rise of anti-Semitism in the 1930s and 40s made the need to return to Israel far more urgent. Jews fled their homes in Europe and Arab Lands seeking refuge in Palestine but found the British Mandate had all but closed the doors to aliyah, forcing them to find dangerous and illegal methods to immigrate - by air, land, and sea.
