Memorial Poster to Bracha Fuld

memorial poster in hebrew

"Bracha Fuld was a member of a Hagana unit which was trying to prevent British soldiers from detaining the passengers of the illegal immigrant ship Wingate as they were landing in Tel Aviv.

The unit had decided to use guns if necessary. Bracha was distributing the weapons to the Hagana unit. When an approaching British soldier tried to stop her, she raised her gun to him but he shot first and she was killed."
