THE LOWEST POINT ON EARTH
The Dead Sea Israel has always held a special place in my life. My mother is a Sabra (Israeli born) and my father a holocaust survivor who moved to Israel after the war. It’s a small country rich with immense history and beauty.
Aerial shots of the Dead Sea illustrate that the dead sea is shrinking rapidly due to water shortage and humans pumping out seawater to harvest salts and minerals . As the water recedes, fresh groundwater wells up causing massive sink holes.
