Large text only poster created to encourage Jews in Palestine to serve in the British Army

Object | Accession Number: 2008.335.2

Broadside produced by the Jewish Agency and Va'ad Leumi appealing to Jews in the British Mandate of Palestine to enlist in the British Army in September 1939. It encourages Jews to defend Great Britain in the war against Germany despite the injustice of the British government issued White Paper policy of May 1939, which severely limited Jewish immigration to Palestine. Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, and that same month, Great Britain declared war against Germany. The Jewish Agency and Va'ad Leumi were responsible for Jewish communal affairs in Palestine.
