National Sites, Archaeology and History

The Atlit Detention Camp is located near the Coastal Road, north of the town of Atlit. It is a national site and serves as an educational center for teaching the heritage of clandestine immigration.

It was used for imprisonment of illegal immigrants, captured after struggling against the British while trying to enter the Land of Israel via sea and land, as well as activists from the Jewish population who had fought against the British rule, including Etzel and Lehi fighters and detainees of the Black Sabbath.
