4.0 out of 5 stars ONE TO BE SEEN, 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silent Exodus [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This documentary should be seen by one and all. It is not in the top flight of documentaries by any means, and were its subject matter covered elsewhere, I would perhaps not give it more than 3 stars. What it contains, however, would warrant 5 stars, since it is an extremely relevant and important subject that does not seem to have attracted any attention whatsoever.
Whilst the world is constantly bombarded with information on refugees throughout the Middle East, more particularly with reference to the unending misery of the homeless Palestinians, no mention is ever made of the plight of the large number of Jews who were victimized in the various Arab countries throughout the Middle East following on from the Arab Israeli war in 1948. Their treatment, as related by various of the victims themselves in this documentary, was very much akin to that meted out to the Jews by the Nazis in pre-war Germany. Being unlawfully and arbitrarily dispossessed and abused, they had little alternative but to flee, with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. It seems that most reached Israel, where they somehow rebuilt their lives from zero (although that is not covered in the documentary). It is a shabby tale, and one that should not have been forgotten - if, that is, it was ever widely known. Now you can find out for yourself.
