  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates and locations unknown or unclear.

    Illegal Jewish immigrant ship.

    L/S waves breaking on beach. Various night shots men, women and children getting into dinghies, they carry bundles of their belongings. The dinghies sail out to a larger vessel, we see the people climb aboard the ship. The ship sails away from the coast. Various shots people crowded on deck of ship, mainly young people, several have babies. Various shots of squalid quarters below deck - men and women are crowded into bunks. They seem in good spirits - they laugh and chat, one man reads book in Hebrew. M/S man at ship's wheel. More shots people on deck - washing, cleaning teeth, brushing hair and shaving. More general shots happy but poor looking immigrants on deck.
