BRINGING SURVIVORS TO A NEW HOMELAND IN PALESTINE - THE "BRICHA" MOVEMENT
After liberation, most Jewish Holocaust survivors were left with no family and no homes. Where could they go? Many survivors dreamed about starting life over and building a new national Jewish homeland in Palestine. However, British immigration restrictions were severe. Survivors needed a way to circumvent them. The "Bricha" (meaning "escape" in Hebrew) movement was established by partisans and ghetto fighters to collect Jewish survivors in Europe and bring them to pre-state Israel. Participate in this webinar to learn from Professor Yehuda Bauer, internationally acclaimed historian and Holocaust scholar, who will share his research and expertise on this topic.
