The Trial of Adolf Eichmann

Loading...
Adolph Eichmann, who devised the "Final Solution," the attempt to exterminate the Jews, was the most hated of the Nazis. His 1961 trial, held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe, was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. This absorbing, comprehensive new documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann's capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world (as concentration camp survivors broke down giving their evidence, Eichmann sat impassive & protesting his [...]

Israel-Palestine: Two Peoples, Two States for One Peace

Loading...
The "Geneva Initiative" was launched by Prof. Alexis Keller from Geneva. In 2002, he succeeded in bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table in order to continue discussions on a peaceful solution of the conflict where they had been left by Bill Clinton in the late1990s. For the following two years, the two delegations met in Geneva, Israel, Palestine and London to discuss the conditions for a possible peace agreement. The Israeli delegation was led by Yossi Beilin, former Israeli Justice Minister in the Rabin government.

Neither group had a mandate from their governments, they were speaking for themselves. [...]

The Conscience of a Warrior Nation

Loading...
A small core of reservist in the Israeli army have refused to serve in Gaza and the West Bank, on moral grounds. They have subjected themselves to jail terms and harsh recriminations. The "refusers" are not pacifists, or cowards; they are willing to serve their country anywhere else but in the occupied territories. One of the organizers, Lieutenant Zonsheine, commended for bravery on the Lebanese front, speaks of his experiences in Ramallah, Hebron and Yenin which polarized him. He saw how searching for Palestinian terrorists in densely populated areas was creating havoc for young and old. With other reservists he published "The Fighters Letter" announcing that they would no longer serve in territories taken by Israel in the 67 war. The group is now five hundred strong, including one [...]

Dance on: Ayala Goren [electronic resource]

Loading...
Ayala Goren, a specialist in Israeli folk and ethnic dancing, begins by defining the difference between the two terms. She points out the wide variety of ethnic dance forms brought to the present-day state of Israel since the early days of Zionism. She cites the contributions of Gert Kaufman, later called Gurit Kadman, as a pioneer in the documentation of these ethnic dances, and in the creation of new dances that became known as Israeli folk dancing. In discussing the evolution of both forms, she notes the necessary compromises of stage presentation and the changes that have resulted from the proliferation of dances and participants.

Golda [electronic resource]

Golda Meir had already retired from public life when she was elected to serve as prime minister of Israel. Thrust into the role at a critical time in her nation's history, she strove to balance many conflicting issues: Arab-Israeli hostilities, U.S. support, and the desire to maintain the upper hand in the Middle East. This program presents a multifaceted portrait of Golda Meir drawn by those who were close to her personally and politically. Her private secretary, former cabinet members, Henry Kissinger, friends and those critical of her decisions-especially concerning the Yom Kippur War-reflect on Meir as an individual and as a world leader.

Israel's Prisoner X [electronic resource]: A Special Edition of Foreign Correspondent

Up until 8:00 pm on February 12, 2013 the identity of an inmate held in solitary confinement at Israel's Ayalon Prison was known only to a very select group of people. But after the Australian investigative reporting show Foreign Correspondent aired that Tuesday night, the secret was out-"Prisoner X" was a Melbourne man named Ben Zygier and apparently a Mossad agent who'd managed to kill himself inside a suicide-proof cell. But had Zygier been working for the Mossad, or against it? This program is a follow-up to the Foreign Correspondent episode that broke open the Prisoner X case, and in response to which Benjamin Netanyahu called for a media blackout on the story. The program reveals new details about Zygier's activities, giving viewers a better understanding of why the Israeli gov [...]

Ben-Gurion [electronic resource]

This documentary tells the story of David Ben-Gurion, the man who bore the greatest responsibility for the creation of the State of Israel: the early interest in Hebrew and youthful proselytizing for Jewish causes assuming sudden urgency from the 1903 pogrom at Kishinev and the call not to stand by and be massacred; the new reason for going to Palestine-national, not religious; his arrival with the second aliyah; the choice of a Hebrew name: Ben-Gurion was the last leader of the free Jewish state before the Roman subjugation.
