In 1935, Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky breaks from the World Zionist Organization to found his own New Zionist Organization.
Over 700,000 people, mainly in Poland, come to vote in the polls to send delegates to the NZO’s founding conference.
With the situation for Jews deteriorating in Europe and Britain enforcing strict immigration quotas, Jabotinsky encourages illegal immigration.
When World War II breaks out, Jabotinsky travels to America to campaign for a Jewish army to help the Allies defeat Hitler.
