Based on revelatory research, private archives and interviews with witnesses, ‘The Reckoning’ tells the true story of  the wartime killing of Avraham Stern – the rebel who terrorized Palestine, and the creation of a cult of martyrdom that destroyed hope of compromise between Arab and Jew.


After the fatal shooting of Zionist fighter Avraham Stern the Jewish community in Mandate Palestine is split between those who believe they need British help to build their new country and those who believe the British are standing in their way. So begins a bitter battle that is The Reckoning. A story that takes you back in time to the pre-1948...
