    One leaf, printed, with text in Hebrew, issued in the name of the "Mishmar Ha Yishuv," commemorating the victims of the sinking of the ship, S.S. Patria, in Haifa harbor, Palestine, on 25 November 1940. The ship was sunk by the explosion of a bomb, planted by members of the Haganah, who hoped to disable the ship so that it would not be able to transport over 1,000 refugees to a British-run internment camp in Mauritius. Instead, the explosion sank the ship, killing 267 passengers and injuring 172. This leaflet, issued as a memorial by the Haganah, in the name of the "Mishmar Ha Yishuv," remembered the victims, advocated against further deportations of refugees, and was printed on 28 November 1940.
