Squashhouse media is in production on a documentary film about the birth of the state of Israel. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, the survivors in Europe became refugees with no place to go. Despite the British blockade and the certainty of imminent war with every surrounding country, Palestine emerged as one last refuge- the promise of a Jewish state bringing renewed hope to a shattered people.

Volunteers from over 58 countries would play key roles in their rescue, as well as in the development of the Air Force, Navy and ground forces of the fledgling state. Men and women, Jews and non-Jews, thousands risked their lives and freedom to give all that they had in the fight for Israel's survival, and to secure the safety of her citizens.

It is crucial that true and unfiltered accounts of these early years in Israel's history be shared with the world. Daily, Israel and the Mideast are in the media worldwide, yet most people today, including young Israelis themselves, have no clear idea of how the modern State of Israel came to be.

Our film aims to bring the incredible untold details of this story to life, and to educate the public at large on the topic of Israel's independence and the events leading up to it through eyewitness accounts and never before seen footage. This is especially important in light of the fact that there is a lack of historical reference and education relating to Israel's birth.

This film series is intended to be a lasting legacy, with our goal being to bring the surviving witnesses and their stories into the public eye. This project is one that must be completed as soon as possible, firstly due to the age of the participants in the film, and because of the climate of anti-Israel sentiment that pervades the media today.

Through extensive research in North America, Europe and Israel, we have been racing against time  to locate and film these participants. Due to their advanced age, time is of the essence, and we cannot afford to wait.

This project, including expenses such as travel and equipment, transcripts, and editing, has thus far been entirely self-funded. We've completed filming over half of the documentary since January. Left to shoot are more first person stories, as well as dramatic recreations, which involve hiring actors and crew at the unique locations where events took place in Europe and Israel. Additional funding needs also include the editing and promotional phases of our documentary.

Your generous contribution is appreciated in order to continue filming dramatic recreations, licensing stock footage and music, and complete the costly editing and post-production process.

Thank you for your support!

 Divvy Ahronheim,  Jeff Hoffman
