Rare Color Footage From Israel, 1946-1948

posted by Brad Hirschfield

This recently discovered color footage from Israel is remarkable stuff! There are many good reasons to watch it. Among them is the story of it’s discovery in a Boston attic, Shimon Peres’ words at the 11 minute mark in which he describes what it means to build a fortune of love and good will, and perhaps the best one — how it reminds us, as the narrator says, that with all of the struggles, “we hade fun”.Enjoy!

Just seeing this, knowing that this was the same time (approximately) my father and uncle were living in Israel, even walking down the same streets at times, give me chills.
