About this Item

8vo. (23 cm.) 61p.(pages printed one side only). Stapled booklet in pictorial wrappers with a vignette on the front wrapper in blue of a Star of David shining through the bars of a prison cell window and illuminating a man holding a rifle. Cover title adds the following: A Human Document from the Palestine Underground by Elimelech Killed in the Acre Jail Break. Water damage to the extreme lower left corner of the book causing the lowest staple to rust which results in a small stain, but nothing is lost, wrappers very lightly soiled, else very good to near fine with no other internal markings. The Acre Prison Break was an operation undertaken by the Irgun on May 4, 1947 in the British Mandate of Palestine, in which its men broke through the walls of Acre prison and freed 28 incarcerated Irgun and Lehi members. The previous April 19, 194, four Irgun members, Dov Gruner, Yehiel Dresner, Mordechai Alkahi and Eliezer Kashani, who had been captured by the British 6th Airbourne Division, were hanged in Acre Prison to become the Irgun's first postwar martyrs. The prisoners mulled an escape, but concluded that this would be impossible without outside help. They contacted the Irgun headquarters with a plan and the Acre Prison Break was the result.
