Alaska over Israel : Operation Magic Carpet, the men and women who made it fly, and the little airline that could Darragh Metzger

Publication | Library Call Number: DS135.Y4 M48 2017

Known as "On Wings of Eagles" and later as "Operation Magic Carpet," the emergency Jewish Airlift that began in 1948 was meant to rescue Jewish refugees from around the world and bring them to their ancient homeland - the newly reborn nation of Israel. In Shanghai, homeless Jews huddled in ghettos and prayed for rescue. In Yemen, entire tribes of Jews trekked miles of desert and robber-infested mountains to the ancient port city of Aden within the British Protectorate to await a miracle. It came in the form of a tiny, struggling American airline known as... Alaska Airlines. -- from back cover.
