82. THE SEEDS OF GAZA: PALESTINE 1944
Michael Neiberg
Friday 28th June 15:00 (60 Min)
IPGL Stage
In 1944, while eyes throughout the Grand Alliance were focused on Operations Overlord and Bagration, other secretive high-level discussions were taking place to address the anticipated plight of hundreds of thousands of postwar Jewish survivors. They would be unable to return to their pre-war homes, but neither Britain nor the United States showed any signs of opening their doors to Jewish immigrants. Decisions made in 1944 and 1945 about the fate of those survivors solved the immediate refugee crisis but set the stage for decades of conflict in the Middle East, laying the foundations of the present day war in Gaza. Mike Neiberg, Professor of History and Chair of War Studies at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, will delve into the Second World War origins of today’s Middle East crisis.
