The Force of the Irrational

The story of the Exodus the ship’s full name was Exodus from Europe ’47 is almost unbelievable. After World War II, Britain was nearly destitute. Food, clothing and fuel were all rationed.

These ships had only one mission: to prevent the survivors of Hitler’s Holocaust — the very people Britain had just helped save — from reaching safe-haven in the Land of Israel.
