Sunday – March 11, 2018 @ 6 PMHello Refugees! with author Tuvia Tenenbom
Enjoy this interesting book event with debate. Light dinner will be served.
To find out the secret behind this character reformation, Tuvia Tenenbom, a Jew born in Israel, presented himself as a Jordanian and was able to gain entry into many refugee camps. Living in squalid conditions in airless rooms and with barely edible food, the refugees begged Tuvia to help them get out of the camps. When not with the refugees, Tuvia traveled through the land and mingled with the local people, who shared with him that they, the Germans, were the kindest people in Europe, far superior to the “inhumane” Jews.
