The Jews’ Secret Fleet is the dramatic story of the rescue of Jews from Europe after World War II by North American Jewish volunteers.

The book includes a brilliant introduction by Sir Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill and author of numerous books on history and geography.

A renowned book that is now the basis for a new documentary film by Alan Rosenthal entitled Waves of Freedom.

The film is being shown in film festivals throughout the US and Israel.

The Jews’ Secret Fleet, is the only authentic book that covers the full participation of 240 volunteers from North America.

These men sailed from the USA to Eretz Israel on 10 ships, bringing some 35,000 survivors of the Holocaust.

The book details their remarkable journey.

The book documents in words and pictures the story so dramatically told in Leon Uris', The Exodus.

It tells the real story of the actual people some of whom were represented by Uris' fictionalized characters. The individuals and the personal stories that inspired the characters Ari Ben Canaan played by Paul Newman in the movie, Katherine Kitty Fremont, Bruce Sutherland, Karen Hansen Clement, Dov Landau and others are documented in this book.
