"The hilltop fortress of Masada was built by King Herod on a high plateau located between the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert. The story of Masada is legendary. The fort was the last hold out of Jewish rebels in their fight against the Romans. After Rome destroyed Jerusalem, a number of Jewish freedom fighters fled to the fortress at Masada. Approximately 1,000 men, women and children lived there for some time. Then in 73 CE, the Roman Tenth Legion laid siege to the fort. When it became apparent that the Romans were going to breach the walls, the Jewish inhabitants burned the buildings and committed mass suicide rather than be taken prisoners."
