Note from the Submitter: In 1947, a treaty was signed splitting Israel in half, their was a lot of unrest, the British pulled their troops out of Israel. Once the British moved out the pictures were looted from the British police intelligence agency in Jerusalem. All the pictures have descriptions on the back. Using the descriptions, I am trying to find the families of the people in the photos.
