On November 30, Jews around the world will remember the fate of more than 850,000 Jews who were driven out of Arab countries and Iran, beginning in the 1940s. The vast majority of Jews from Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Syria, and Yemen faced persecution and violence, fled their homes, and left the countries where they had lived for centuries, even millennia, solely because of their Jewish identity. They emigrated to Israel, as well as North and South America and Europe, where they’ve sought to preserve their rich heritage and unique history. Join AJC for three first-hand accounts of this tragic, inspiring, and little-known chapter of modern Jewish history.
