On the sign:
בשנת 1939, סמוך לפרוץ מלחמת העולם השנייה, נחתה לפנות בוקר, בחוף הרחצה של תל-אביב, מול כסאות הנוח, ספינת מעפילים בשם "פאריטה" עם 850 מעפילים מפולין, ליטא ורומניה. תושבי תל-אביב המופתעים לא היססו, יצאו בהמוניהם לחוף ואספו לבתיהם את המעפילים.

In 1939, shortly before the start of World War II, the "Parita" reached the beach of Tel Aviv carrying 850 illegal immigrants from Poland, Lithuania and Romania. The residents of Tel Aviv were surprised, but did not hesitate to take the immigrants to their homes.
