Official Book launch: ‘Uprooted’ by Lyn Julius

24 January 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Wednesday 24 January 2018. 8pm.

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 is there a conspiracy of silence, what made the Jews leave countries where they had been settled for thousands of years, what became of the majority who settled in Israel, and how can their cause contribute to peace? How can the plight of minorities help us understand Islamism? Lyn Julius will discuss all these questions and more with Saul Zadka, author and journalist specialising in Middle Eastern Affairs, on the occasion of the publication of Lyn’s groundbreaking book, UPROOTED (Vallentine Mitchell). There will be an opportunity to purchase signed copies at a discount. Tickets £10 from Spiro Ark 020 794 4655 or Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue, Norrice Lea, London N2 0RE.
