More About this Item


Description: Approximately 200 photographs from Atlit Detention Camp. Atlit, [ca.1947]. An extensive collection of photographs depicting daily life in Atlit Detention camp, while "Haganah", Etzel and Lehi members were imprisoned there. Atlit Detention Camp operated since 1940 until after the establishment of the State of Israel, and during most of its years of existence was used to detain Jewish illegal immigrants. Following the "Black Sabbath" (June 29, 1946) members of "Haganah", Etzel and Lehi were also imprisoned there. Jewish prisoners transferred from the central prison in Jerusalem and detainees who were returned from detention camps in Kenya were all also imprisoned in Atlit. In 1987 the camp was declared a National Heritage site commemorating illegal immigration (Ha'apala) and Aliya to Israel. Some of the photographs are titled on the reverse "In Atlit Camp", and bear short captions with names of the photographed, or the circumstance when the pictures were taken: "time of Gemara study in the Atlit detention camp synagogue", "Entrance to Atlit camp, photographed by Mina, a detainee in Atlit camp for girls", "Husband and wife detained. The wife - beauty queen of Atlit camp", "Our exterior supervisor overlooks the Carmel 'smiling' in the distance", and more. One photograph (in a format larger than others) is titled and dated - "Leil Haseder" 5707 [April 1947]. An additional photograph is titled on the reverse in Hebrew: "Latroun - the guys conquered the armored vehicle" and was most probably taken in Latroun Detention Camp. The photographs depict daily life in Atlit camp (apparently, some depict daily life in Latroun Camp); Leisure time activities, interior of barracks, exercises and sports, reading, formations around the flag, lowering the flag at evening, dining room, laundry, gate to women's camp, and more. Average size of most photographs: 8.5X6 cm. Two 9X14 cm photographs and one 4X3 cm photograph. Good overall condition. Some stains and damages to margins.
