Israel: A Nation Is Born
Witness the rebirth of Israel as a nation! This visual anthology chronicles Israel’s struggle for birth, survival, and independence, beginning with the 1917 signing of the Balfour Agreement to the Arab/Israeli peace talks of 1992. This is an educational treasure of rare archival footage documenting the event for which the world had waited nearly 3,000 years. Former Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban chronicles his recollections of, and his part in, the creation of the state of Israel. This 5-part series tells the story of the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, subsequent conflicts including the 1967 Six-Day War, the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Eqyptian-Israeli peace treaty, and key events of the last decade.
