Description
Debuting in 2014 on PBS, this five-part series examines the history and cultural contributions of the Jewish people. Episodes focus on the biblical era ("The Beginning"); medieval times ("Among Believers"); the Enlightenment ("A Leap of Faith"); shtetl culture and its mark on the modern world ("Over the Rainbow"); and the post-Holocaust era ("Return"). As a historian and a Jew, Simon Schama says this is his most personal film. "Think of me," the British-born Schama jokes, "as your Downton rabbi." While covering historical phenomena such as the Diaspora, the Holocaust, and tensions in the Middle East, Schama doesn't stint on Jewish culture, especially humor and music. He is best known for the television series Simon Schama's Power of Art and his book on the French revolution, Citizens. "Anti-Semitism is not going away in Europe, something we don't always realize in the United States" Schama told USA Today. "It's becoming truly toxic, which is one of the reasons I wanted to make this series."
