Farhud Day: The Arab-Nazi Alliance in the Holocaust
On International Farhud Day, Edwin explores the deadly Arab-Nazi alliance that stretched from Paris to Palestine. Conference of Presidents leader Malcolm Hoenlein and HARIF-UK co-founder Lyn Julius join Edwin.
Edwin Black detailed the history and fallout of the Farhud in his book The Farhud: Roots of the Arab-Nazi Alliance in the Holocaust. He was also the driving force behind the establishment of International Farhud Day, first observed on June 1, 2015.
Lyn Julius also covered this history in her book How Uprooted: 3000 Years of Jewish Civilization in the Arab World Vanished Overnight.
I24 News ran a special report, “Remembering the Farhud pogrom that ended Iraqi Jewish life, 81 years later,” and Tabby Refael wondered about the number of people who don’t know about—or at least don’t talk about—the Farhud.
