The Underground Prisoners Museum was first established
in the 1800s as a shelter for Russian women. During the time of the British Mandate, the
shelter was turned into a prison for Jewish fighters. These fighters
included members of the Haganah, Lehi and Irgun groups. These groups fought against the British control over Israel,
and secretly helped Jews immigrate from Europe during and after the Holocaust.
Inside the museum, a visitor will find documents and photographs depicting
the imprisonment of the Jewish soldiers as well as exhibits on the history
of the various underground armies. The Underground Prisoners Museum
shows the history of the fight for a Jewish state.
The Underground Prisoners Museum is located at 1 Mishol Hagevura Street
