4 MILLION BULLETS: THE UNTOLD FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL
A new documentary about the inspiring, first-hand stories of international heroism, intrigue, and ingenuity that helped to ensure the creation the state of Israel.
The film reveals how everyday people from North America, South Africa, and Europe – young adults, former World War II soldiers, business people, Holocaust refugees, Jews and non-Jews – came together and defied nearly impossible odds in an effort to establish a nation for the Jewish people.
Join filmmaker Jeff Hoffman as he takes on a journey through the living testimony of everyday Jews and non-Jews, who created the State of Israel. Risking death around every corner, these heroic men and women smuggled into Israel essential material for the war effort: Nazi weapons captured in Europe, dynamite hidden among washing machines on the docks of New Jersey and flew surplus airplanes across to Czechoslovakia and Palestine creating the IAF.
This little known, yet significant part of Israel’s history, dramatically shows that Israel did not simply rise up out of the ashes. Israel was born of the heroics of individuals, who realized that Israel was the only bulwark against the envy and hatred that has haunted the Jewish people throughout history.
Today, there is no avoiding the fact that Jewish youth are having to bear the brunt of anti-Semitism on campuses. “4 Million Bullets” tells the stories of the brave men and women, who rallied for Israel, at the moment of her greatest need. It will serve to both educate and inspire the young Jews, who have found themselves on the front lines of an age-old battle, emboldening them to face the assault rather than cower in fear. The film’s value is forever.
