This exhibition includes a short film, which shares insight on leadership aspects regarding crucial dilemmas and decisions Ben-Gurion faced, which remain complicated and sensitive issues in Israeli and Zionist historiography. During crucial moments, should a leader listen to protesting voices – or remain true to his personal judgment? Is a strong leader characterized by the authority he holds or that he shares? Should a leader be pragmatic and led by the current reality- or a visionary who dares to dream? The dilemmas presented in the film are intertwined with important historical events, such as Operation Nachshon in 1948, and Ben-Gurion’s ruling regarding the reparation money from Germany in 1952.
The film is available in Hebrew/English and offers subtitles Hebrew/English/Russian/ Spanish/French.
