The Forgotten Refugees
- Is it an issue 60 years on?

Film (49 min) and Q & A

The Muswell Hill Israel Awareness Committee will be showing the David Project’s film, The Forgotten Refugees. The film, made in 2006, uses extensive testimony of refugees from Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and Morocco and explains how and why the Jewish population in the Middle East and North Africa declined from one million in 1945 to several thousand today.

In the Q & A following the screening, Lyn Julius of Harif will examine the political implications of the mass flight of Jews from Arab countries. She will explain why the Jewish refugees are not just an issue 60 years on, but are the key to achieving a just peace, and reconciliation between Arabs and Jews. An awareness of their plight not only gives crucial context to the Palestinian narrative, but is the key to understanding the Arab and Islamic conflict with Israel.
