During and just after the war Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban delivered two now-famous speeches to the United Nations, on June 6 and June 18. Referring to the latter, in which Eban spoke just after Soviet Foreign Minister Aleksei Kosygin, James Reston in the New York Times wrote:
Mr. Kosygin’s request that the United Nations should pretend that two and a half million Israelis were a menace to eighty million Arabs set the stage for the Israeli Foreign Minister, Abba Eban, who talked like a Cambridge Don and who came through like a tank commander. It is easy to understand after listening to this debate between Kosygin and Eban why the Russians are suspicious of free speech.
Audio recordings of the speeches are available below, apparently for the first time on the web.
Also available below are newsreels covering the war and its aftermath. Newsreels were played in move theaters before the main attraction or between double features. Thanks to the rise of news on television, newsreels died out in the 1960’s but some of the last ones covered the Six Day War, and those from Universal are available below.
Finally, at the bottom of the page are some of the documentaries that have been made about the war.
