The Last Sea
When Holocaust survivors realized that they had no home to return to, nor families to welcome them, thousands set out on the perilous journey to Israel. The dramatic story of this Jewish exodus from Europe to Israel is told in this 1979 production. Witnesses describe traveling by truck and by train, journeying by foot over the Alps, and crossing the sea aboard dangerously overcrowded ships. Note: May have some graphic footage. (JHS?MS+). Color. (90 min.)
