Journalist Lisa Goldman is a veritable treasure trove of information, most of which never makes it into her blog. Thankfully, I am privileged enough to be her friend on facebook and thus I get all kinds of gems like this video below. Remember all those old skool movies you used to see about the birth of Israel or whatever? They were always in black and white, right? So much so that when you think of David Ben Gurion, you don’t imagine him in flesh tones, you think of him in shades of grey. Well, thanks to a fortuitous discovery in Boston, this no longer has to be the case. Watch this video. Seriously. It’s amazing. Hebrew with English subtitles.
Thanks Lisa! Now blog more often!
UPDATE: You can buy the full length documentary that the above clip is based on HERE. Please note also that this video clip appeared in April on the JIDF who got it from Israel Matzav who cited Y-Net. OK? Do we have enough hat tips now?
