Infotainment: The Forgotten Refugees

A very interesting documentary about Jews in the Middle East, called: "The Forgotten Refugees".

In 1945, there were up to one million Jews living in the Middle East and North Africa outside the Palestine Mandate - many living in communities dating back more than three millennia. Today, there only remain several thousand.

Who are these Jews?  What precipitated their mass-exodus in the 20th century?  Where did they go?  And why don't we know their stories?
