Long Live the Hebrew State!

The Arch of Titus is associated with the Roman victory in the Great Revolt of 73 AD. On the gate, built in the year 82 AD in honor of Emperor Titus’ victory over the Jews, appears a relief engraving depicting the triumphal procession with sacred objects taken from the Jewish Temple. 1866 years later, there were Jews who celebrated the establishment of the State of Israel at this site. In the photograph depicting these celebrations, which is part of the National Library’s collection, we see Jews waving signs that read: “Appreciation and Thanks to the United States of America and the Soviet Union for Supporting our Independence.” Other signs read:“A Hebrew State – An End to Degenerative Life in Camps” and “Long Live the Hebrew State.”
