Event Note

In March, 1941, Bernard Gelbart arrived in Palestine with the last of the 152 children from Vilnius.
Sara Kadosh cites: "it was discovered that many of the candidates were indeed above the age of Youth Aliyah and had traveled on forged passports. Szold was so furious at this violation of regulations that she refused at first to meet with Gelbart, and even threatened to inform the British that she was not responsible for the illegal actions.' Szold's concern for legality was also evident in her reaction to the rescue of youth from Yugoslavia."
