Three Landmarks of Jewish History

Dead Sea Scrolls, Temple Records and the Rebirth of our Nation.

We take a guided tour of the world’s largest, accurate and perhaps only model of the old walled City of Jerusalem, based on all available historical records.

It is situated in the Israel Museum at Jerusalem, and conceptually placed next to the listed building containing the Dead Sea Scrolls, so named because they were found in caves near the Dead Sea at Qumran, the location of a group of Jews who are thought to have written them at around the second temple period in the first century. They contain in part, sections of the Bible, details of the Temple construction  and rules of Judaism etc.   

 All are indisputable proof of Israel’s historic connection to this land.

 And: The rebirth of our Nation.

From one Survivor, to 311 direct descendants.

All this and much more in the book Survivors by Aliza Auerbach, which can be described as survivors’ testimonies with a difference, told in literally wonderful photographs with several short biographies including that of Shulamit Catane who has 11 children and at the last count 84 grand children and 216 great-grand children.

This book is the story of the miracle of rehabilitation, the power of survival with the emphasis on hope and is a testimony of will over matter.   Hear the author talk about her motivation to produce this work.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
