March 1946: the vessel Wingate, with 238 ma’apilim on board, is escorted by the British destroyers that intercepted her. Forces of the Hagana had organized to receive the ma’apilim in Tel Aviv, in an operation that was called "Wingate Night". But the ship never got to Tel Aviv as it had been captured. The whole incident led to high tension in the Tel Aviv area and to shooting. Bracha Fuld of blessed memory, a member of the Palmach, was killed that night during a fire exchange.

Pictured on this New Years card is the “illegal” immigration ship The Exodus 1947. The Exodus 1947 attempted to bring Jewish survivors to Eretz Israel in 1947, only to be turned back to Europe by the British Mandate authorities and sent to Displaced Persons’ camps in Germany. The Exodus 1947 became an international symbol of the need for free Jewish immigration to Eretz Israel. The refugees remained in the camps until 1948, when the State of Israel was established.
