Description by I.F. Stone

Haganah Medal

Haganah  Haganah

The front picture is one of the boats that illegally smuggled concentration camp survivors into Palestine, against the orders of the British who ruled Palestine. I.F. Stone traveled as a passenger on one of these ships in 1946 and wrote about it in Underground to Palestine. The Hebrew words are from The Prophets, and they read something like, "Eventually all the dispersed people will come back to their country." The year at the bottom, in Hebrew, is 1945-1946.

In Latin, on the back, it reads, "Judah is restored." The picture on the left is the Arch of Titus, in Rome, built to commemorate his victory over Judah, his destruction of the first Holy Temple in 70 C.E. The gate to the right is a gate to the Old City of Jersalem, leading to the Western Wall (the holiest site for Jews; the closest standing wall to the once Holy Temple). The date in Roman numerals is also 1945-1946.
