Atlit Detainee camp was established by the British in 1938 to prevent Jewish refugees and holocaust survivors from entering the land of Israel, and so follow the Arab demand to to limit Jewish immigration into contemporary Palestine.
It functioned as such untill the end of the British Mandate period.
Since 1987 Atlit Detainee camp is a national heritage site, and since 2010 it includes a well-planned visitors center in a former Latvian boat.
