This article explains that after the Liberation that most all of the Jews were left in the concentration camps. They were made to stay there, they brought in treatment so that they would stop dying, but were not allowed to leave. The militaries in charge of keeping them safe believed that they may harm those outside of the camps. The Jews that were left wanted to go to Palestine. This article tells of how they were surveyed and how other parts of the world were the reason that they started allowing them to flee to Palestine.
