Episode 20 – Truth to Dust

Legend has it, that when the Jews of Prague were threatened by anti-Semitic violence, a great Rabbi, possessing the knowledge of alchemy and the Kabbalah, conjured up a golem to defend the city. For decades, most believed this was nothing more than a tall tale, until one night in 1938, when the Nazis marched into town…

Is there any truth to this fable? And if so, is the golem still sealed inside an attic somewhere, waiting for the right time to come alive?
