Simon Schama presents this epic series exploring the extraordinary story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. Both deeply historical and utterly contemporary, this is a compelling film about distinctiveness and difference, separation and isolation, tolerance and prejudice. It is also a celebration of the ways in which Jewish thought, imagination, and achievement have transformed the world for us all.

I saw this wonderful story unfold from the beginning of the series and found I could barely wait for each sucessive narration. It was beautifully told and comprehensive in scope. The on-site locations added to this compelling history. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased it as a gift for a friend.

DISAPPOINTED

By ES

from FLORIDA

Comments about PBS The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama DVD:

DID NOT FOLLOW THE STORY LINE AS SEEN ON TV WHICH
BEGAN WITH ANCIENT JUDISM BEFORE THE INQUISITION.
THIS ONE BEGAN MUCH LATER WHICH WAS DISAPPOINTING
SINCE I WANTED TO REVIEW WHAT I HAD SEEN ON THE
PROGRAM. IT WAS MARKED ALL 5 SERIES BUT OMITTED
THE EARLY BEGINNINGS.
