Rainer M.  Schröder - Sky Without Stars


More in the news than ever: refugees in search of a home

Alija Bet – that is the code name for illegal immigration to the British mandated territory of Palestine. And it is a glimmer of hope on the horizon for Leah and Jannek – both of them are the only ones in their respective families to have survived the concentration camps and now, in 1946, are traumatised and roaming as living dead through the bombed ruins of Munich. They hear of the dangerous and expensive crossings in overcrowded, scarcely seaworthy vessels; they hear of the many refugees who have drowned or been imprisoned in the British internment camps; of the battles with the local Arab population. But they have no alternative. So they both embark on the crossing over the Mediterranean as illegal refugees – hoping to find a new home.
