Lyn Julius, author of Uprooted: How 3000 Years of Jewish Civilization in the Arab World Vanished Overnight will speak to the JHSE about how until the mass exodus of Christians and Yazidis, the post-1948 displacement of more than 850,000 Jewish refugees was the largest population movement of non-Muslims from the Arab Middle East and North Africa, yet the subject is hardly ever discussed.
Why did Jews leave countries they had been settled in for thousands of years?
What lessons can we learn from the mass exodus of minorities?
What became of the majority who settled in Israel?
How can their cause contribute to peace?
