In December 1938 the Seychelles exiles (see 268 - 269) were released, but for several years they were not allowed to return to Palestine. Here they are seen at a party held in their honor in Cairo shortly after their release. Seated first left is Abd aI-Hamid Shoman, founder of the Arab Bank (see 92) .
