After the war, brothers Yisrael and Yitzhak Roth and their cousin Aryeh Klein, Hungarian survivors, decided to make their way illegally to Eretz Israel (Mandatory Palestine) together with members of their Hachshara (pioneer training) group from the Hashomer Hatzair youth movement. They sailed together on the ship Knesset Israel, but the ship was caught by the British, and its passengers deported to detainment camps in Cyprus.
