The clip opens with the bringing to trial of a group of Jewish men and women, suspected of blowing up the railway tracks in Haifa in June 1946. The detainees belonging to one of the Jewish Underground organisations in Palestine, are brought before a judge at the opening of their trial. The segment then continues with the arrival of the illegal immigrant ship Henrietta Szold to the port of Haifa. British soldiers arrest the illegal immigrants from Europe who are to be deported, and the immigrants board a second ship destined to sail to a detention camp in Cyprus.
