Seventy years after the secret Operation Michaelberg brought 100 Jews to British Mandate Palestine by air, Israelis who were on the flights gathered with their relatives to celebrate the anniversary at the site of the former Atlit Detention Camp in Israel. A restored model of the Operation Michaelberg aircraft was on display. Hillel orchestrated Operation Michaelberg and later Operation Ezra and Nehemia, and helped smuggle Iraqi Jews through Iran, resulting in the exodus of 130,000 Jews—out of a community of 140,000—in Israel’s earliest days.
