The opening of the clip depicts Jewish refugees who have recently arrived in Palestine, and are waiting for distribution of milk containers in Jerusalem. Later the clip depicts the site of the terror attack in Jerusalem after the explosion of the British Officers Club building on King George Street (the Goldschmidt House). The Irgun underground (Etzel) claimed responsibility for the attack, which resulted in the killing of 17 British soldiers and officers. British soldiers examine the ruins of the building that was blown up and clear the rubble. (Taken from the Sherman Grinberg Film Library)
