The Illegals

Author Meyer Levin joined the Haganah's European underground after World War II, and recorded on film the fantastic story of the "Aliyah Bet"- the clandestine movement of Holocaust survivors to Palestine. Levin, movie camera in hand, did not miss a moment. He kept shooting film, even as British soldiers boarded the "illegal" Haganah ship that was to carry them to the shores of the Land of Israel. The end result was this film. Made available through the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive in Jerusalem.

The Unafraid
In 1977, Meyer Levin returned to Israel to track the lives of those people he recorded thirty years earlier in The Illegals. What became of those who fled Europe; trekked across snow covered peaks; boarded overcrowded ships; risked their lives? Delicately combining footage from his earlier film, he effectively documents this gripping episode.
