Event description

Description

Almost a million Jews from Arab countries and Iran have been forced to flee from the 1940s onwards, forced out by state-sanctioned terror. Many were airlifted to Israel. Those who fled did not consider themselves refugees. They rebuilt their lives and were granted full civil rights in Israel and the West. This is in contrast to the original Arab refugees numbered only 70000 and to whom UNRWA gives successive generations permanent refugee status, including those with other nationalities.

Lyn Julius is the British-born daughter of Iraqi-Jewish refugees. She graduated in International Relations from the University of Sussex. A journalist and blogger, her work has appeared in the Guardian, Jewish News, Ha'aretz, Standpoint and Huffington Post, among other media. She is also the founder of Harif, the UK Association for Jews from the Middle East and North Africa.
