A portrait of Herbert Pundik

In 1993 Herbert Pundik retired from his position as chief editor at the newspaper Politiken. Since then he has held a position as senior foreign correspondent with a special engagement in the debate about the conflict in the Middle East. Herbert Pundik has written a number of books and he has received several reputable awards like the Cavling Prize, the Modersmål Award, the Radio’s Rosenkær Prize and the Ebbe Munch Award. JJ Film has made a moving portrait of this fascinating and strong personality. Herbert Pundik talks about the reasons for the conflict in Palestine, about the need for establishing a Jewish state, about the outlook for the creation of a dialogue and about the costs of war – in general and for him and his family.
