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.

This is remarkable1 I thought I was well versed on the history of the Jews before and after the Holocaust and there was much I did not know and that made it even more interesting. It is one of the best documentaries I have seen with excellent photography, music and a narrator unmatched in Simon Schama. I recommend it highly.

I can't rate it ... It looks like an exceptional, well-told history which I would enjoy immensely but PBS ' sound is so terrible there are very few programs I can listen too ... Other stations are not a problem ... My hearing is fine and the TV is. Just a year old.
I've called Cablevision and PBS .... PLEASE PBS DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR SOUND SYSTEM!!!!!

A compelling story

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

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.

very good dvd

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

I really enjoyed this DVD.I learned a lot of history I didn't know. This was really informative to me especially after having been to Israel for a visit. Much more background history than I already knew or learned on my visit, which was very informative also. So Thanks for a great historical visit!
