Item Description:

King George VI was made famous by the movie “The King’s Speech,” but the major thoroughfare of Jerusalem was named for his father, King George V. His reign covered the years of the British Mandate, hence the street name, but more important are the parallels of the British Empire to the modern State of Israel. History provides no easy answers, but Rabbi Wein proves how the problems we now face also challenged humanity a century ago.

• “home rule” of Ireland and the Oslo Accords
• King George’s German wife and the suspicions she aroused
• the problems of ruling an empire
• father and son – two accidental kings
