Overview

The difficult birth of the nation of Israel is the subject of this documentary feature, the first in a projected three-part series that explores how the nation came to be formed in the wake of World War II, and the frequent skirmishes between Arab and Israeli forces, leading up to the Six-Day War of 1967. Combining rare newsreel footage with interviews from a number of participants in Israel's struggle for peace, In Search of Peace -- Part One: 1948-1967 also features narration from actor Michael Douglas. Edward Asner, Richard Dreyfuss, Anne Bancroft, and Michael York also contribute readings of historical documents to the soundtrack.
