A MILLION REFUGEES

Dr. Kedar will explain why the story of the Jewish refugees from Arab
lands was so unknown for many years. Why has this changed recently?
He will cover topics like the mindset of the Israeli society and leadership
during the 50s and 60s, Israeli priorities, self-presentation, stereotypes,
and relations between communities.
