Uprooted: How 3000 Years of Jewish Civilization in the Arab World Vanished Overnight

with Lyn Julius


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 did Jews leave countries they had been settled in for thousands of years?
What lessons can we learn from the mass exodus of minorities?
What became of the majority who settled in Israel?
How can their cause contribute to peace?

Lyn Julius undertakes to answer all these questions and more in Uprooted, the culmination of 10 years of work studying these issues.

The British-born daughter of Iraqi - Jewish refugees, Lyn Julius is a journalist, blogger and founder of Harif, the U.K. association of Jews from the Middle East and North Africa. Her work has appeared in JNS News, Times of Israel, Jewish Chronicle, Haaretz, Huffington Post, The Guardian etc. Uprooted is her first book.
