Toldot Yisrael is a Jerusalem based nonprofit organization dedicated to recording and sharing the firsthand testimonies of the men and women who helped build and found the State of Israel. Over 1,000 video interviews have so far been conducted with those who were involved during the pre-State struggle and the momentous events of 1948. Our aim is to conduct hundreds more over the next several years - while it is still possible.
"Eyewitness 1948" is a short film series produced by Toldot Yisrael and the History Channel. The films are the centerpiece of an educational pilot program developed with The iCenter, made possible by the generous support of the Jim Joseph Foundation.
