The Ministry of Religious Affairs has produced a 16-minute documentary film showing the desecration of Jewish religious shrines and institutions in East Jerusalem during 19 years of Jordanian occupation. The film contains still photographs borrowed from the Zionist archives. It will be shown in schools and community centers. Prints with English, French or Spanish narrations are available for screenings abroad.
