Memories, beliefs, legends and ancient myths are at the heart of persistent and cruel massacres in the Middle East. This is the story of the holy places where history stands still.
The Temple Mount, Joseph’s Tomb, Rachel’s Tomb and The Cave of the Patriarchs:
To this day these locations provoke the harshest of wars. They provide the headlines in the media of today and tomorrow and determine the agenda in the Middle East.
This four-part series sheds new light on the ongoing bloody conflict characterized by hatred, mistrust and demonization of the other. Each chapter is based on authentic and extreme characters carefully selected to reflect a fragile and uncompromising situation.
