This photo, taken around 1860, shows walls built within feet of the historic wall. Local Jews call it Kotel, which some say is a Hebrew play on words – using a number associated with God and the word “hill” – thus, “God’s Hill.”

The Palmach fighter Bracha Fuld was killed on "Wingate Night", when the Hagana forces were preparing to receive the ma’apilim of the vessel Wingate. The vessel Bracha Fuld was named so in her memory and arrived in Palestine carrying 806 ma’apilim. The vessel had a terrible journey and was almost swamped in a terrific storm (October 1946).
