Stern: The Man and His Gang by Zev Golan is the first English-language account of the life of Abraham Stern, the charismatic poet who founded the underground that called itself the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel.

    During the first segment of this , Yehudah HaKohen interviews Zev Golan. Discussed are the roles played by the Jewish underground, the Irgun (Etzel) and Lechi (Stern Group), both of whom fought the British Empire in order to create the modern State of Israel. The standard line we read in most history books is that these were “terrorist” groups. However, the existential threats posed by the British, even their cooperation with the Nazis, is rarely discussed.
