Jewish DPs who have been evacuated from Berlin to Frankfurt as a result of the Soviet blockade, wait at the Rhine Main Airfield for transport to displaced persons camps.

The original caption reads, "Jewish displaced persons arrive by plane at the Rhine Main Airfield, Frankfurt, Germany, from the blockaded city of Berlin, on operation "Vittles". 150 came in the first group, and 180 are expected to arrive on July 24, 1948. Most of these DPs have been granted visas by the new State of Israel, and will go to DP camps in the U.S. zone to await shipment to Palestine, while others will leave for Canada, France and the U.S.. Here DPs wait for trucks to arrive to carry them to trains."
