Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 5:OOPM: HILL 24 DOESN’T ANSWER
It is 1948. Israel is fighting not only for its independence, but for its very existence. Jerusalem is under siege. Four young Zionists are assigned to defend strategic Hill 24 outside Jerusalem, in order to maintain access to the besieged city. Through the diverse personal stories of the defenders, we gain a critical perspective on the birth of Israel and those who risked their lives to insure its survival.
This screening is part of a class by Dr. Shaked and Dr. Edelman on “Israel: The Making of a State, An introduction to the creation of the State of Israel in its historical context”.
