With Dr Gardner Thompson
Israel was established in 1948, in the wake of the Holocaust. However, to understand the character and destiny of the new state we have to review the end of the Great War, and crucial decisions made then by the British Government of David Lloyd George. Join historian Gardner Thompson to unpack this fascinating period for Britain, Zionism and the Creation of Israel.
