June 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War (June 5-10, 1967) between Israel and the surrounding Arab countries. We are sharing with you a 12-part video series entitled Countdown to the Six Day War Project. These videos, co-sponsored by The Jewish Federations of North America, track the events of May and June 1967, cover the conditions leading up to the war, and chronicle the events that took place on the six days of battle.
June 10, 1967: Day Six of the War. The tenth video of the 12-part series marks the end of the Six Day War. The video relives the relief and euphoria felt throughout Israel. Israel was now the Middle East’s dominant military power. It now controlled the Golan Heights, the massive Sinai desert, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the reunited city of Jerusalem, the site of the ancient Jewish Temple. The result in the Arab world was humiliation and anger. Watch the video to learn about the implications of Israel’s victory.
The war was a pivotal event in the history of the Middle East, the Jewish people, and Israel-Diaspora relations. The Six Day War Project depicts through film the dramatic and suspenseful events of 1967 that transformed the State of Israel.
The series concludes with several segments that examine the immediate effects of the war and long-term aftermath of this iconic chapter in the history of the Jewish state.
Stay tuned for the 11th video.
