Underground to Palestine, first published in 1946, is the account of noted journalist I. F. Stone about the hundreds of thousands of European Jews attempting to reach the new Jewish homeland of Palestine following World War Two. With the help of agents of the Haganah, the Jewish military force in Palestine who were arranging this exodus, he traveled with Holocaust survivors from displaced person camps in Germany and Poland on over-crowded trains and on foot, crossing at times unfriendly borders, to southern Europe. From there, Stone joined more than a thousand refugees as they crowded onto an illegal ship, and departed with the aim of defying the British blockade to reach Palestine and a new life as free Jews. Along the way, Stone documented the stories of the concentration camp survivors in this moving story of the human will and the struggle to survive.

This is a good story by a journalist who shadowed a group of Jews from Poland to Palestine, traveling as they did, in stealth to avoid the Nazis and their colaborators.
