Description

Tan paper with Hebrew title. Includes the emblem of Israel with Star of David and olive branch on upper lefthand corner, and beneath it a large printed 50 in a decorative border. Also includes printed black Hebrew text and an illustration of two angels sitting by a tent with luggage in a black box.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Single sheet newspaper printed in Hebrew from 3.2.1949 titled "Shurot." Cyprus was an internment camp for Jewish refugees from the Holocaust who were captured and detained by British forces having been accused of attempting to gain entry to Palestine/Israel illegally. Cyprus internment camp was closed in February 1949. Thus this appears to be the final issue of this newspaper. The cartoon depicting two sad angelic figures perhaps represents the stateless Holocaust refugees from Europe, with bags packed, yet uncertain as to when they might enter the promised land.
