Join AJHS and ASF in celebrating the publication of Benghazi-Bergen-Belsen, the first novel about the Holocaust of Libyan Jews, hear a staged reading from the upcoming theatrical adaptation of the novel, premiering at La Mama Theater March 2017, and meet author Yossi Sucary for the post-reading Q&A.

Silvana Haggiag is a brilliant and beautiful young woman in her early twenties, dismissive of the patriarchal norms that govern her Jewish community in the Libyan city of Benghazi. When Silvanas family is violently uprooted from its home and homeland, she is taken along with other Libyan Jews through the blazing Sahara Desert and war driven Italy to freezing Germany. Benghazi-Bergen-Belsen, the first novel about the Holocaust of Libyan Jews, brilliantly depicts the transformations and tribulations this intriguing community has undergone during the Second World War.
