Monday 16th June. 7.45 pm for 8pm. Dine and Learn Evening: Dinner catered by Chantal Young precedes must-see film The Forgotten Refugees (2005 – 50 mins) by Michael Grynszpan (courtesy of JIMENA) at 9pm. Followed by Q&A with Michelle Huberman of Harif.
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. Cockfosters and North Southgate Synagogue. To book, £15 (wine not included) call 0208 886 8225 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
