EXTREMELY RARE album of about 175 b&w photographs documenting the "Berihah" (or Bricha/Bericha), the great exodus of European Jews following the holocaust, who illegally crossed the borders of Soviet-occupied lands and made their way as illegal immigrants to the shores of Palestine. Special sections of this album are dedicated to children and orphans who took part in this immigration effort, and another section documents the famous journey of the ship Exodus. The book contains short texts and image captions in English, Hebrew and Yiddish. The book was compiled by Ephraim Dekel, a high-ranking Haganah member and one of the architects of the "Berihah". 240x340mm. Unpaginated. Rebound in black cloth Hardcover. Original front cover pasted on front. Cover slightly stained. Title page and first text page missing and replaced by photocopied pages from another original copy of the book. Stamp on rear whitepage. Few mild age-stains on page shoulders. [SUMMARY]: Save for some light wear, this rare documentation of the perilous journey of illegal Jewish immigrants is in good condition.
