Acre - Photographs
Acre is a coastal city in northern Israel and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The British defeated the Ottomans in 1918 to take control of the city which subsequently became part of the British Mandate for Palestine. The British used the ancient fortress, which had never been breached, as a high-security prison to hold (and execute) members of the various Jewish underground groups.
