This is a rare opportunity to understand the founding father of a nation - a modern-day Moses - one of the most fearless and inspiring figures in modern history.
- Time Magazine named him one of the Top 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century.
- He emigrated from Poland to Palestine - then part of the Ottoman Empire - at the age of 20.
- Late in life, Ben-Gurion was famously photographed standing on his head on the beach.
To return a culture to its native land after centuries of persecution and dispersal, to carve a sovereign Jewish nation from the Arab-held territories of the Middle East, to anyone but David Ben-Gurion these were impossible dreams.
In this remarkable presentation from BIOGRAPHY®, discover the phenomenally committed, passionate activist and politician who is probably the only man in history who could have founded Israel. This Herculean task spanned nearly 50 years, an effort that exacted a high cost on Ben-Gurion's personal life. Through all-new interviews and rarely seen archival materials, get to know the legendary leader and the captivating man.
