The Masada fortress is a symbol of Israeli struggle for freedom and Israeli nationhood. The fortress was built by the Jewish king Herodes the Great, who ruled the country from 37 to 4 BC. During an uprising against the Romans, which was put down violently, Masada served as the last stance for the remaining one thousand Jewish warriors, who - being outnumbered ten times - fought to hold the fortress against the advancing Roman army. Remains of military camps, which the Romans built during the siege of Masada, are still visible. When it became obvious that the defenders cannot hold the fortress anymore, they all committed suicide, together with their families, to escape captivity and slavery. Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
