On December 2nd, our EMET for Israel group, Tulane University Students Supporting Israel (TUSSI) together with our CAMERA Fellow Emma Colbran, hosted a screening of the documentary “The Forgotten Refugees,” a film about the Jewish refugees from countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. One of the movie’s directors also attended, and held a question and answer session following the screening.

The attendees enjoyed the film, and were provided with a perspective that they had not been exposed to before. The audience asked questions about how the film was made and about what impacts the film has had on the world. Especially interesting for students was the attendance of the actual director.

For future events, more posters will be hung around Tulane’s campus in addition to hanging up flyers and posting on Facebook to increase attendance.
