Spanning millennia, this history of the Jewish people explores how a small group who started as desert nomads overcame countless obstacles to survive to the present day. From slavery to the loss of their homeland; from exile to anti-Semitism; from pogroms to near annihilation in the Holocaust, how did the Jews endure while so many other communities vanished? The answers are surprising.

Did Jewish history end in 1948?

By Gorgon

from New York, NY

Comments about PBS The Jewish People: A Story of Survival DVD:

The film ends with the UN authorizing the Jewish state of Israel, but doesn't describe how the state has survived in the last 60 years. Possibly PBS feels that the anti-Israel BBC news that it runs regularly is enough to get Jews to support it with cash.

Comments about PBS The Jewish People: A Story of Survival DVD:

I watched as tears streamed down my face ~~ so proud to be of Jewish heritage. Not only did I buy a copy for myself but I am giving them for Chanukah to my family members who will one day share them with their children.

I used this Video to complement my Jewish History course for 11-12 year old students. Worked well after we finished the course as a recap.

An incredible journey through Judaism!

Comments about PBS The Jewish People: A Story of Survival DVD:

This is one of the most comprehensive and informative DVD's I have ever seen, about the history of the Jewish people. I think that everyone would benefit from seeing this DVD, as it dispels many misunderstandings, myths and prejudices about Jews. Thank you for such a wonderful production. I am not Jewish, but my husband is. I gave him this wonderful DVD, as a
Hanukkah gift and he was delighted with it. It affirmed who he is and where his people came from.
Thank you!
