The Arch of Titus and the Temple Menorah From Jerusalem to Rome and back
Using breathtaking animation, The Arch of Titus reconstructs the triumphal procession in which Titus marched the vast amount of booty taken from Jerusalem in 70 CE, including the golden menorah from the Temple, through the streets of Rome. A picture of the menorah being carried by Roman troops was carved on a monumental victory arch in Rome 2000 years ago, and since then it has been a symbol of degradation and oppression for the Jewish people. The film follows the dramatic events that turned the Arch of Titus into a symbol of freedom and liberty, and the captive menorah into the official symbol of the State of Israel.
