Operation Mural film

19 February 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Wed 19 February 2014, 8pm.

‘Operation Mural’ film. Holland Park Synagogue, London W11. As part of a week-long series of events to mark the exodus of Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim Countries, Spiro Ark and Harif are proud to screen this 55-minute documentary film as a tribute to the late David Littman. The film tells the little-known story of how 530 Jewish children were smuggled out of Morocco to Israel in 1961. Mural was the code name for Littman, who with his new wife Gisele Orebi – the future writer on ‘dhimmitude’ and Eurabia, Bat Ye’or – posed as an English gentleman to carry out this risky mission.  In July 2009, over 40 years later, Littman was finally granted official recognition in Israel for his bravery and awarded the order of the Hero of Silence. His widow Gisele will present the film and answer your questions. Booking Harif 07506033848 or info@harif.org.
