In 73 CE, at a mountain-top fortress in Masada, as Flavius Josephus
claimed two years later, 967 men, women, and children killed each
other and themselves. The last holdouts in a revolt against Rome
(which had ended officially in 70 CE, with the siege, sacking and
ransacking of Jerusalem and the Second Temple), they committed mass
suicide as a “free choice of a noble death” over slavery to the
Romans.
