On Tuesday, November 18th, Michael Fischbach, the author of Jewish Property Claims Against Arab Countries will be speaking at the 92nd St Y in New York City on the claims of Mizrahi/Sephardic Jews who lost property during their exodus from Arab countries in the years after 1948. Based on archival research, Michael Fischbach analyzes the nature and scope of these claims, as well as why Israel and international Jewish organizations have largely deferred taking strong action to resolve them.
Michael R. Fischbach is a professor of history at Randolph-Macon College. He is the author of Records of Dispossession: Palestinian Refugee Property and the Arab-Israeli Conflict; State, Society, and Land in Jordan; and The Peace Process and Palestinian Refugee Claims: Addressing Claims for Property Compensation and Restitution.
