About this product
- DescriptionThe term Aliyah Bet refers to illegal Jewish immigration to Palestine in the period of the British Mandate for Palestine; it constituted one of the most effective methods of struggle of the Zionist movement for the sovereign state of Israel. Its history is marked, on the one hand, by clandestine activities and spectacular operations, and on the other, by dramatic events (catastrophes of sea liners carrying immigrants, deportations of refugees). The book discusses events without which one cant understand the contemporary Israel.
- Author BiographyArtur Patek is professor of history at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, specialising in the history of the British Mandate for Palestine as well as in Polish emigration in the 20th century. His books (in Polish) include Great Britain's Policy Towards the State of Israel During the First Arab-Israeli War, May 1948 -- January 1949 (2002).
