The Jews Libya

Dr. Gina Waldman
Founder of JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and
North Africa), San Fransisco
Gina Waldman will speak from personal experience of discrimination
and persecution and her battle to win recognition of the nearly one
million Jews who were forced to flee their homes in Arab lands from
1948–1970. She vividly recalls that as a young child she faced adversity
when going to school in an Arab country. She has lived in the US for
the past 35 years where she has dedicated herself to the cause of
freedom and the defense of human rights.
Presented by the Jewish Diversity
and Israel Connections Committees
Program co-Sponsor

Born Regina Malaka Bublil in Tripoli to a family
that had lived in Libya for centuries, she was
persecuted, nearly murdered and brutally
expelled from her homeland in 1967, because
she is Jewish. Waldman co-founded JIMENA in
2002 to bear witness to the suffering of Jewish
refugees from Arab lands.
