70 Years of Israeli milestones in 165 seconds - a video timeline

Israel's story is a phenomenal one. It’s the story of a country that was founded 70 years ago in the middle of a desert, with few natural resources, and a backdrop of relentless war and terror. And yet, against all odds, Israel managed to build a nation that is not only strong and democratic, but is also one of the most innovative and creative nations of the world today.

 

Israel’s story is entirely unique. There is no other nation like it in the world. What better time to celebrate that than on the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding.

In the exhibition every decade of Israel’s 70-year existence is explored, from the 1950s with its high unemployment, economic austerity and the birth of Israel’s extraordinary agricultural industry, to the last decade which has seen Israel find its way into virtually every home around the world, either through its dazzling high-tech industry and health innovations, or through humanitarian aid, or Israel’s growing cultural presence.
