GENOA, ITALY – Living in the hope that one day they will see their Palestine homeland, 250 Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe are making their home in a villa in Genoa which once belonged to a Fascist official. The group was larger at first, a year and a half ago, but it is believed that some have left to try to enter Palestine in spite of the British authorities. The remainder long for their homeland.
Almost completely supported by local Jewish organizations, the group does run a small tailor shop which provides some money. None of them work in Genoa, for workers union would not permit their taking the job of an Italian. The life is simple, religious, though not orthodox, and much time is spent in learning Hebrew and the means of wresting a living from the soil.
Officially, they are waiting for immigration certificates from British authorities, but there is small hope. There always is the bright dream: Palestine. These photos by Julius Humi, ACME correspondent, show the way the group lives.
The youngest member in the group, 15 year old Munovitch Menahim, of Celsocov, Lithuania, built this gravel mosaic showing the Zionist Boy Scout badge inside the star of Star of David. He is the youngest and most enthusiastic member of the group.
