‘Searching for Exile: Truth or Myth?’

4 November 2013

Professor Sacha Stern (UCL Hebrew & Jewish Studies) appeared on BBC Four in a debate chaired by Ed Stourton on the controversial documentary film ‘Search for Exile: Truth or Myth?’ (Ilan Ziv, 2013), on Sunday 3 November 2013.

The film, which was shown before the debate, argues that there was no exile of Jews from Palestine after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE, and that contrary to the Zionist myth of exile and return, Jews and Arabs have had a common history in the land until the creation of the State of Israel.
