New documentary

“Chronicles of a cultural destruction: The story of 70,000 “collected” books.”

“The film will reconstruct in a multifaceted approach the systematic “collecting” – by the newly born State of Israel – of 70,000 Palestinian books during the 1948 war. 

This documentary is in post-production phase, but we continue seeking pictorial material concerning the plunder affair, eye witnesses, and people who know something about this historical episode.”
