Synopsis Description: Was there an Arab "Schindler"? This is the never-before-told story of the Holocaust in the Arab lands of North Africa, and one man's quest to find the truth. Thousands of people have been honoured for saving Jews during the Holocaust, but not one single Arab. Looking for a hopeful response to the plague of Holocaust denial sweeping across the Arab and Muslim worlds, Robert Satloff sets off on a quest to find the Arab hero whose story will change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves and their own history. The story of the Holocaust's long reach into the Arab world is difficult to uncover, covered up by desert sands and desert politics. We follow Satloff over four years, through eleven countries, from the barren wasteland of the Sahara, where thousands of Jews were imprisoned in labour camps, through the archways of the Mosque in Paris, which may once have hidden 1700 Jews, to the living rooms of octogenarians in London, Paris and Tunis. The story is cinematic; the characters are rich and handsome, brave and cowardly. There are heroes and villains. The most surprising story of all is why, more than sixty years after the end of the war, so few people - Arab and Jew - want this story told. This incredible book made a huge impression in the Arab world. Rob has toured Tunis, Egypt and Israel to discuss his book, and thanks to his research, an Arab has been nominated as a 'Righteous Gentile' in Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial in Israel.
