I was growing up in Ireland when this wonderful movie was shown. We were so proud that an Irishman was a leader in the courageous defense of the hill in the hours preceeding the U.N.vote. I can only imagine how disgusted those defenders of the hill would be to see the country they died for turn into an international pariah. The Jews kicked out the British--good for them--but then became just as bad. A very sad end to one of the few events of any decency that followed the war.
