The Forgotten Refugees

Tuesday 7 May 2013. Kenton United Synagogue. Must-see film by Michael Grynszpan (courtesy of JIMENA). Followed by Q&A with Michelle Huberman of Harif. Harif/Kenton Israel Group.
Using extensive testimony of refugees from Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and Morocco the film recounts the stories – of joy and suffering – that nearly one million Jews have carried with them for so long. The film weaves personal stories with dramatic archival footage of rescue missions, historic images of exodus and resettlement, and analyses by contemporary scholars to tell the story of how and why the Jewish population in the Middle East and North Africa declined from one million in 1945 to 4,000 today.To book and for details ring Esther Lipton on 0208 909 1308 or email eblipton@talk21.com.
