Historic Middle East Refugee
Films on DVD

Price: $14.97     SKU: A153     Qty:

The Middle East has always been a region in conflict. That conflict is highlighted here with the sage of the Arab-Israeli was and its huge impact on millions of Arabs as they are torn from their lands and thrust into refugee camps to eke out whatever existence that they can manage for themselves for the duration of the war.

Here are the contents of each of the films in the Arab-Israeli Conflict film collection:

Sands of Sorrow (1950)

This landmark film, narrated by Dorothy Thompson, speaks of the refugee problem of the Arabs during the Arab-Israeli war. The film shows refugees living in tents in the Gaza Strip and how Egyptian soldiers give them blankets and foot and how UNICEF helps out by delivering flour. It also shows how the refugees are working in various capacities in the city of Jerusalem. It also shows doctors giving vaccinations against diseases that are all too common in this type of squalid living state where there is no sanitation, not enough food or shelter and a general malaise amongst the refugee population.

All in all, this is a remarkable film showing the horrid conditions that people live in when under a state of siege.
