A collection of reading and viewing relating to the Six Day War.

Ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War we have gathered together some useful reading/viewing on the topic which will also be posted in our ‘Library’ section on the menu bar above for future reference.

1) CAMERA’s dedicated website ‘The Six-Day War: Causes and Consequences’ can be found here.

2) A briefing produced by BICOM – ‘Causes and consequences of the Six-Day War (1967)’ can be accessed here.

3) Starting on May 17th, the Jerusalem Post and several other organisations will be releasing a series of videos: sign up for alerts here.

4) The Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Jewish Chronicle and the JLC have also produced a social media project titled ‘The Six Day War: 50 Years On’.

“The initiative will play out on Facebook and Twitter from mid-May to mid-June.

The daily posts on both social media outlets cover the breaking news for each day, illustrated by contemporary newsreels, photographs and reports from 1967. The project focuses on how the fast-moving crisis in the Middle East affected British Jews.”
