Product Overview

Of the 40,000 Jews who lived in Syria prior to 1948, some 4,500 remain as virtual hostages in Syrias conflict with Israel--under conditions that have been compared with those in Nazi Germany. Friedman describes the experiences of this persecuted group in the hope that the pressure of public opinion will persuade the Syrian government to put an end to the torture, killing, and harassment and allow Jewish residents to emigrate. The author recounts the suffering and injustice endured by individuals and families living in Jewish sections of Damascus, Aleppo, and Qamishli over the past thirty years. The book includes several moving first-person accounts that graphically reveal both the systematic oppression that characterizes the Syrian governments treatment of Jewish citizens, as well as the governments tolerance of acts of violence against Jews committed by members of the Arab majority. To safeguard those who have been left behind, the author conceals the identities of both Jews still living in Syria and the rescuers who have been working to get them out, and he withholds specific information about escape methods and routes. This book carries an important message that will be of interest to general readers as well as students and specialists in Near Eastern affairs. *Author: Friedman, Saul S. *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 157 *Publication Date: 1989/10/06 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.49 inches
