History of Israel Explained

We explore the inspiring highs and heartbreaking lows, and the everyday struggles of ordinary people, that have gone into creating the modern-day State of Israel.

Whether you have strong opinions on Israel or are just curious, this 50-part series casts a new perspective that will challenge what you thought you knew about this unique country. What is the meaning of the Israeli national anthem? What’s the idea behind exchanging land for peace? Is Zionism a form of racism?
