Description
Program Description
"ISRAEL'S FORGOTTEN HEROES is a stirring tribute to the possibilities inherent in mankind. As the spiritual nucleus of three of the world's major religions-Christianity, Islam and Judaism ? Israel draws interest and attention far disproportionate to its small geographic size. To Jews in particular, the State of Israel is a source of pride, inspiration and meaning. TO the world, it is a place of exceptional historical significance. "ISRAEL'S FORGOTTEN HEROES recounts the personal stories and recollections of American men and women, Jews and non-Jews who, despite seemingly impossible odds, participated in Israel's 1948 War for Independence. This original documentary, hosted by actor Hal Linden, paints a dramatic picture of these 'Forgotten heroes,' who brave and selfless contributions made perhaps, the difference in the outcome of the war. "Through the use of archival footage and present-day interviews with surviving participants, a powerful and often moving story unfolds. Professor Howard Sachar from George Washington University in Washington D.C., a leading American authority on the history of Israel, provides overall historical context. "Prior to the release of this documentary on WPBT Channel 2 in South Florida, this story had never been told to a mass television audience. Based on the critical response to the program, a national release is planned for early 1999."--1998 Peabody Awards entry form
