Atlit-Museum Israel


The museum of the former internment camp of the British Mandate government provides insight into England's (often unnoticed) fatal immigration policy from the late 1930’s on. As early as 1937, England drastically restricted immigration to Israel to avoid a Jewish majority. In 1938, in view of the threatening war and according to the wishes of the Arab states, England reduced the immigration quota for Palestine once again: to 75,000 Jews plus 25,000 hardship cases for 5 years (i.e., max. 20,000/year). This happened while Hitler's persecution of the Jews was increasing not only in Germany but also in the occupied territories! And as soon as the quota was reached, all further immigrants were considered illegal and were sent back or interned by the British. Even in 1946, when 96% of the Holocaust survivors wanted to go to Palestine, England held on to the original quotas under pressure from the Arab countries.

Kibbuz Beth-El


The Kibbutz Beth El, "House of God" with Protestant roots was founded in 1963 by the German Emma Berger to help Holocaust survivors with charity. It is known for its Beth-El Industries, today the world leader in air filtration systems. An impressive example of standing by Israel and serving Israel as an antidote to anti-Semitism and the Holocaust.
