This is a biography of Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the first President of Israel, incorporating film footage, sketches, and still photographs. The film begins with Dr. Weizmann's inauguration as President and then surveys his life from childhood in Russia, to early adulthood in Germany and England, and his eventual arrival in Palestine. The documentary then discusses the rise of Hitler in Germany, the "White Paper," the effect of World War II on European Jews and Palestine, and culminates with the proclamation of the State of Israel with footage of Truman recognizing Israel and presenting Weizmann with a Torah as a gift.
