A first-rate overview, this video details the long history of Jewish life and persecution in Arab lands. For thousands of years, Jews were exiled from their own land, scattered throughout Europe and the Middle East. This documentary presents a country-by-country survey of a specific region. With the use of rare film footage, photographs, and interviews, The Dhimmis presents a comprehensive picture of a thriving Jewish life despite many hardships and much conflict.
