The Jewish People (2008)
This is the story of Jewish survival. From slavery to the loss of their homeland; from exile to anti-Semitism; from pogroms to near annihilation in the Holocaust, how did they endure while so many other communities have vanished? Hosted by Martha Teichner, Senior Correspondent for “CBS News/Sunday Morning,” THE JEWISH PEOPLE: A STORY OF SURVIVAL explores some of the answers. // While other films have explored Jewish religion or Jewish culture, this one-hour original production is the first Jewish film organized around the central themes of survival and the achievement of a people. Moving chronologically, THE JEWISH PEOPLE: A STORY OF SURVIVAL offers a sweeping overview of the four millennia and the numerous civilizations – the Babylonians, the Romans, the Muslims, the Spanish, the Soviets and others – that have ruled over the Jewish people.
