Overview

The Jewish people have one of the oldest and richest civilizations in the world, with over 5,000 years of history and traditions. This nine-volume documentary chronicles the story of the Jews, from the birth of a people in the Middle East's cradle of civilization through the creation of the state of Israel in 1947. Archival film footage and photographs, art and artifacts, journals and personal accounts, and commentary by scholars provide the particulars about a people that have long been persecuted, and yet have given so much to world culture. This second volume examines the time period between 586 B.C.E. and 72 C.E., and the effects that six centuries of rule by the Persians, Greeks, and Romans had on Jewish civilization. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, All Movie Guide
