The Forgotten Refugees

 

The Forgotten Refugees, an award-winning documentary about the plight of nearly one million Jewish refugees from Arab lands, explores the history and destruction of the Middle Eastern Jewish communities they fled, some of which had existed for over 2,500 years. As Israel struggled economically in her early days of statehood, more than 650,000 of these refugees were absorbed. The Forgotten Refugees features testimony from those who fled Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Morocco and Yemen. Their personal stories are interspersed with dramatic archival footage.

 

Following the screening, Shahar Azani, Executive Director for Stand With Us Northeast Region, will share
his personal story as a child of forgotten refugees from Yemen and contemporize current events.
