I think our guide Here many Jewish refugees were detained when they tried to return to their historic and religious homeland following World War II. What really got to me Atlit Detainee Camp was operated by the British from until Israel became a country. During and after the Holocaust, Jews from Europe were seeking a safe haven. They tried to come to the Holy Land. Palestine was controlled by the British. The British blocked Is very eye-opening and important to see how the miserable Jewish refugees from Europe were treated by the anti-semitic British authorities who were in control of our land after the Holocaust.

Only the most compliant detainees can keep a toothbrush, toothpaste and soap. Those being disciplined or segregated from others must ask for their hygiene items from guards, who monitor their use, then remove them. To prevent a toothbrush from being shaved into a shank, the detainees are issued stout plastic rings with bristles attached.
When they do leave their cells, prisoners are shackled and escorted -- to and from showers, recreation pens, interrogation interviews, and a meeting or two each year with their lawyers. Once a man has refused nine consecutive meals, he is considered a hunger striker and brought to the detention medical center. A doctor-recommended quantity of Ensure is administered.
To limit the number of men outside their cells at any one time, recreation hours are staggered around the clock, leaving many to choose between sleeping at 3 a. No more than two are within speaking distance of each other during rec time, and even then they are separated by a guard. The men do communicate, though. Current world events are learned from visiting lawyers and somehow passed on through steel doors.

Several prisoners have been caught penciling messages in the books they borrow each week from the visiting library cart, one of the few distractions they are allowed. More than 2, books and magazines in 18 languages are stocked for the prisoners, each vetted for its potential to incite. Borrowers lose their reading privileges and are disciplined if found passing notes.
Even bottled water is something that can be denied to those who break camp rules, as underscored during the recent war-crimes arraignment of Mohammed Jawad. The Afghan asked for water but was refused because he had balked at leaving his cell.

These scanners are very sensitive and will detect any prohibited or other items. Unless exempted by the General Manager, any visitor that repeatedly fails to successfully enter the walk-through metal detector after voluntarily removing all obvious items restricting entry is not permitted to enter the AMC, unless the Area Manager or above is satisfied that the security and good order of the correctional centre is not undermined. If the Area Manager or above approves the visitor entry to bypass the walk-through metal detector, the visitor must undergo a manual hand-held metal detection assessment and may require a further frisk search by a Gatehouse Officer.
Following this, the Area Manager or above may direct a non-contact visit or cancel the visit and ask that the person remove him or herself from the correctional centre. Visitors may be searched at any time while on correctional centre grounds which may include the use of Passive Alert Detection PAD dogs. This includes the car park and Visits Centre. This is to be approved by the Area Manager or above before being allowed entry.
Visitors who require these items are to approach the Corrections Officers at the x-ray security scanner check point. It is an offence under the Corrections Management Act to bring prohibited items into the AMC, give a prohibited item to a detainee, or remove a prohibited item from the AMC. Visits will be monitored by Corrections Officers at all times. Visitors must comply with all reasonable directions given to them by Corrections Officers. Religious headwear or other religious or cultural adornments will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Failure to adhere to appropriate dress standards may result in the visitor being refused entry and the visit cancelled. Legal and other accredited visitors may enter the AMC or visit a detainee seven days a week.
