The Forgotten Jewish Exodus

This is a fabulous website about the one million Jews who, in the 20th century, have been forced to flee oppression in the Muslim world.

Check out the great posters, especially the one showing the New York Times headlines Sunday, May 16, 1948 -- "Jews in Grave Danger in All Moslem Lands: Nine Hundred Thousand in Africa and Asia Face Wrath of Their Foes" and "Protection of U.N. Sought for Jews." See also The David Project.

We need to learn more, and teach more, about the histories of the Mizrahi, the Jews of Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Egypt and Morocco.
