The complete history of the Jews from the Desert to the Holocaust. A highly readable history, though it can't be that detailed, will still give one a sense of the incredibly long journey we have taken. There are some wonderful pictures included here, notably the great Dome of the Mosque of Omar in Jerusalem which none of us get to see, a synagogue at Caesurae, some very poignant shots of Jews in Russia from the 19th century, and a fine picture of Dr. Chaim Weizmann's inauguration as first president of Israel.
