A detailed bird’s eye view embraces the area between Damascus and Sidon on the north and Gaza and Hebron in the South. The map was made in 1931 by the main office of Keren haYesod, an official fundraising organization for Israel, and showcases the Jewish territory in 1930. Marked are also Arabian and Jewish settlements and historic sites.
The back of the map represents the political borders and transportation in the area. The text in German lists the donations of different countries to Keren haYesod in the past decade.
