Watched this last night. The stories from Jewish and Palestinian families were heart breaking. It goes back to the time when Israel was created and family members trace back and discover what happened to their ancestors. It gives both a Jewish and a Palestinian perspective on a very troubled country. Well worth a watch.

Read The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan.

I’m going to watch it today sometime.

A country born in violence and misery. So very sad.

We've recorded it so look forward (if that's the right word) to watching it.

I was pleased that Palestinians were able to tell their side of the story, it makes a refreshing change.
Definitely worth watching for a more balanced picture of what went on 75 years ago.
Another episode next week,

Definitely worth a watch. A well constructed account of heartbreaking events brought to life by descendants from both sides.
