The Israeli veterans
Volunteers of the Yishuv for the British Army during World War II 1939 – 1945
World War II broke out in September 1939 with the German army invading Poland.
The Jewish community in Palestine (Israel) then numbered about half a million people. Many of the countrymen felt obliged to join the war against Hitler and his army. Arabs hardly enlisted, while from the Jewish community about 40,000 men and women volunteered for all branches of the British army.
The issue of the recruitment of compatriots to the British army provoked controversy in a settlement that was in serious conflict with the British government and its “White Paper” policy, a document that restricted immigration to the country and the purchase of land in it. This and more. An ostrich that the German army, under the command of General Rommel, stood at the gates of Egypt, in the country there were those who preferred to provide manpower to protect the settlement itself.
Ben-Gurion decided by saying that we must help the English as if there were no “White Paper” and fight the “White Paper” as if there were no war.
As mentioned, close to 40,000 members of the settlement volunteered for all branches of the British army and served in Israel, the Middle East, the Western Desert and Africa. Eventually, they arrived in Europe and were the first to meet the She’erit HaPleita, give them significant help and help bring them to Israel. Few served in the Far East when the war moved there, about 800 people fell dead in the war.
It is worth noting that in this war against Hitler’s army were for the first time all the Jewish soldiers on one side of the barricade, one and a half million Jews served in the Allied armies in World War II.
The volunteers from Palestine tried to maintain the Jewish and Zionist character of their units, some in British units, some in independent units. The highlight was the establishment of the Jewish Brigade in 1944.
The experience gained in the British army contributed significantly to the establishment of the IDF.
David Ben Gurion:
“We must help the British as if there is no ‘White Paper’ and fight the ‘White Paper’ as if there is no war.”
