      The real story of the boat known as Exodus is no less astounding and epic in nature than the story portrayed in the film, by the same name. The Exodus, which departed from France on J , was filled to capacity with 4, Jewish refugees, making it the most populous boat to bear refugees to Palestine since the end of the Holocaust. Saw the movie Exodus. Exodus detailed the plight of the Jews trying to enter Palestine and the ruthless treatment given by the British to keep them out.
