The information Center in the former British detention for illegal immigrants in Atlit, Israel is looking for information about the role of the United Fruit Company's ships in the immigration of Jewish refugees after the holocaust.
Pictures, documents and testimonies would be welcome.

Re: involvment of the company in Jewis immigration to Palestine

I am researching Albert Einstein's possible involvment of helping Jews escape Nazi Germany in the years 1933 to 1940. He did make several trips incognito to Puerto Armuelles in Panama and did travel aboard ships of the Great White Fleet. I do have documentation of a local Jewish man in Panama who was aiding the escape of Jews through Panama possibly on UFCO ships.
