On the sign:
בשנת 1939 יצאה "רים" מנמל קונסטנצה ברומניה. ליד חופי האי רודוס פרצה דליקה בספינה והיא טבעה. המעפילים חולצו כולם, אך לא הצליחו להציל דבר מהספינה. לאחר למעלה משישה שבועות במחנה צבאי איטלקי ברודוס, הועלו המעפילים על ספינת מעפילים אחרת והמשיכו בדרכם לארץ, הורדו בלב ים מול נתניה והגיעו לחוף בסירות. סיור משטרת החופים הבריטי גילה את הספינות. המעפילים נעצרו במחנה המעצר בסרפנד (צריפין) ולאחר זמן שוחררו.

In 1939, "Rim" sailed from the port of Constanța in Romania. It sank near the shores of Rhodes, after a fire broke out. All of the illegal immigrants were rescued, though all their luggage was lost. The ship’s passengers spent more than six weeks in the Italian military camp on Rhodes. Afterwards, they boarded another illegal immigrant ship and continued their journey to the Land of Israel. They reached the shore of Netanya after being transferred in boats from the ship in the open sea. The boats were spotted by the British. The immigrants were arrested and transferred to the Sarafand (Tzrifin) detention camp. They were released after a period of time.
