After Rome had crushed the Jewish revolt of 70 AD, a small group of Jewish zealots still held out atop the mountain fortress of Masada in the rugged desert. Nearly all of them committed suicide, rather than be captured by the Romans. The meaning of Masada, and the facts, are still disputed.
This is a segment from "Land of Milk and Chutzpah” a free video presenting a 1995 trip to Israel and Petra, Jordan. The video includes Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee, Golan Heights, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Masada & the Dead Sea. Jewish, Islamic, and Christian holy places are all presented. (The movie reflects a time of optimism regarding the peace process, and the viewer should approach it from the context of 1995.)
