ISRAELI Pte. Nets4a4

The S.S. Ben Hecht

"simply recognized that it was
his obligation to do what he
could to help the survivors of
the Holocaust — it was nothing
more complicated than that."
Anchoring in a small French
port, the Ben Hecht took on 600
Holocaust survivors. One week
later, just nine miles from Tel
Aviv, the ship was intercepted by
three British destroyers. The ref-
ugees were deported to Cyprus,
where they would remain until
the establishment of Israel 14
months later.
Uncertain what to do with
the crew — since they were
Americans — the British took
them to the prison fortress at
Acre but did not thoroughly
search them. At the com-
memoration, David Miller,
Captain Levitan's grandnephew,
explained what happened next:
"Uncle Bob managed to sneak
a camera into the prison. That
was a godsend to the impris-
oned members of the Irgun
Zvai Leumi, Menachem Begin's
underground fighting force. They
were planning a breakout, but
didn't have a way to manufacture
the false identification papers
they would need once they got
out. Bob's camera solved that
problem."
A few weeks later, under U.S.
pressure, the British shipped
the crewmembers back to
America. A few weeks after that,
the Irgun staged the Acre Prison
breakout. El
