AND THERE WAS ISRAEL
A long-feature documentary by Romed Wyder
And there was Israel goes back to the sources of the founding of the State of Israel and the role western countries played in it.
Through unexpected archives, interviews of recognised specialists and original pictures of the Palace of Nations in Geneva, the movie shows how Great Britain, as well as other western countries, promoted Zionism following their own agenda. Hence, not only the West carries a massive responsibility towards the fate of Jews in Europe then but also towards the fate of Palestinians today.
