Lecture by Tudor Parfitt, Distinguished Professor, Academic Director at JMOF-FIU
Rescue: The Exodus of the Ethiopian Jews is the title of a book written in 1987 by Ruth Gruber, the subject of our current exhibition, which described the amazing operation to rescue the Ethiopian Jews. Tudor Parfitt's book on the same topic Operation Moses: The Untold Story of the Secret Exodus of the Falasha Jews from Ethiopia came out two years before.
Professor Parfitt, will describe the operation and reflect on the various accounts of Operation Moses, including Gruber's and the facts they revealed (and omitted).
