the British which led to the creation of the State of Israel. The background recalls the ceremony
of the raising of the Israeli flag at the UN building in 1949 and an extract from
the speech Sharrett delivered on that occasion. The back illustrates Jewish Brigade volunteers,
a look out tower and text from a radio address by Sharrett.
