The shooting lasted only six tense days in June 1967, but the Six Day War has never really ended. Every crisis that has ripped through this region in the ensuing decades stems from those six fateful days. On its 40th anniversary, the region remains trapped in conflict and is every bit as explosive as it was in 1967.



Written and directed by noted filmmaker Ilan Ziv (The Junction, Human Weapon), Six Days in June chronicles the events of forty years ago with a fresh historical perspective. Beginning with the buildup for the war, and the political and military maneuvering of Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Egyptian President Jamal Adel Nasser, the film takes us through the six days of fighting, the war with Jordan, the occupation of the West Bank and the unification of Jerusalem.



Featuring stunning archival footage and first-hand accounts of the war from both the Israeli and Arab soldiers who fought it, Six Days in June explores how these events became the flashpoint in history that reshaped the regional political landscape, destroyed old systems and brought new forces to the surface. Rarely in modern times has so short and localized a conflict had such profound global consequences.



A must–see film for all who aspire to understand the situation in the Middle East and its impact on the world political stage, Six Days in June weaves a complex tapestry and presents the viewer with a fuller picture of the region in this critical moment of transition.


"In his well-balanced and lucidly contstructed documentary....Ilan Ziv provides invaluable perspective and fresh insights while offering an enlightening history lesson with the narrative momentum of an engrossing drama."
-Variety

"This interesting new documentary manages to present a fairly fresh and unbiased perspective on a controversial history that's been analyzed time and again over the past 40 years. With interviews with insiders and a number of key players, and a wealth of archival footage, Ziv's gripping film is as tense as any Hollywood movie and filled with a cast of larger-than-life personalities."
-TV Guide

"A rich primer on the origins of the Middle East’s enduring tumult, Ilan Ziv’s intricate, propulsive explication of the 1967 Six Day War gives The Battle of Algiers a run for its money. Ziv exhibits archival bravado with his assembly of news footage, slick but unobtrusive reenactments and personal recollections."
- Time Out- New York

watch the film

On September 10, 1952, the state of Israel and a new Jewish organization, created to represent “world Jewry in its material claims against Germany,” signed a post-war reparation and compensation agreement with West Germany. Neither the world’s Jewish communities, still devastated after the Holocaust, nor those in the state of Israel, which was still struggling to survive after only four years of independence, noticed the dangerous legal precedent created on that day. Twenty-three leaders of major Jewish organizations took it upon themselves to represent, in perpetuity, the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, as well as the hundreds of thousands of survivors and their decedents, in their material claims against Germany.

It is this precedent that came to haunt the Jewish world almost forty years later when in 1990 “The Claims Conference” and the World Jewish Congress, using this post-war legal precedent, started a public campaign “in the name of the victims”, to restore looted Jewish properties to their rightful owners. These two organizations, by their own words, have succeeded in amassing close to twenty billion dollars. In the Name of the Victims tells the disturbing story of how some of this astronomical sum was raised. These organizations’ legal acrobatics have left thousands of survivors bitter and resentful towards the very organizations that were supposed to act in their name. But even more shocking is where some of these billions went, and how, despite these astronomical sums, thousands of holocaust survivors in Israel and in the United States are ending their lives in utter poverty and humiliation.


 

 

Interview with director Ilan Ziv

"In the Name of the Victims," directed by Ilan Ziv, is an infuriating and shaming must-see film that should be broadcast at the beginning of newscasts, and also justifies a commission of inquiry."
