The transit camps were a controversial enterprise, housing hundreds of thousands of new immigrants from different parts of the world, transitioning them into becoming part of the Israeli cultural tapestry. The transit camps period (1948- 1952~), although affecting the Israeli society until these very days, is forgotten from public consciousness.
The film “Ma’abarot” is the first documentary project unfolding the story of the transit camps in a thorough and comprehensive way, unraveling the many stories of the camp residents, examining and discovering many surprising new details, shattering common stereotypes in the current Israeli discourse.
