Zion’s Captive Heroes


by Zev Golan



In the 1930’s, Jewish teens in the Promised Land began to dream of going to jail. A British colonialist government had restricted worship at the Western Wall, the purchase of land, and Jews from immigrating despite the German threat. The idealistic dreamers decided to wrest their country from the British, to fight for independence. They knew the British would send them to prison. They knew they or their friends would hang. This book reveals the untold story of what happened inside the fearsome Central Prison of Jerusalem under British rule.
