S/s “exodus” Burns Down in Haifa Port; Carried Jews to Nazi Germany

The ship “Exodus” in which Jewish immigrants were forced by the British authorities in Palestine to sail in 1947 back to Germany, and which was to be converted into a floating museum of Jewish immigration, was burned down today. The fire was noticed in the morning on the ### deck, from where it immediately spread to all parts of the ship. The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
