2 Reviews missing the point
20 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

The previous reviews have completely missed the point of this mini-series. While the history of the aftermath of the holocaust, and the resulting illegal immigration to Palestine is indeed taught in Israel, and was dealt with in numerous movies, this is the very first time, to my knowledge, that we are told that Jews of Morocco played a part in this early stage of the Aliya. Most official sources, to this day, are telling us that Morocco's Jewry emigrated to Israel in the years 1954-55, and that some came as early as 1948, as soon as the State of Israel declared its independence. This mini-series details an hitherto unknown episode, in which, mostly young, Moroccan Jews participated in the clandestine emigration to the Holy Land as early as 1947, on board of the rickety Yehuda HaLevi, and have taken part in the Hagana-led fighting for the establishment of the State of Israel. It is time that this story was added to the chapter of Israels' early history, cinematically speaking.
