Linitzer Guest Speaker - Mar 20, 2022 - Raffi Berg

Our speaker for March was journalist Raffi Berg, the Middle East editor of the BBC News website, and author of Red Sea Spies: The True Story of Mossad's Fake Diving Resort.

Secret agents, a lost Biblical tribe and a fake holiday resort - brought together in one of the most astonishing operations ever carried out by Israel's intelligence service. In a story which inspired a Netflix film, Raffi Berg lifts the lid on how a team of daring Mossad agents posing as hotel staff by day smuggled thousands of Ethiopian Jews out of Sudan to Israel by night in one of the organisation’s most incredible acts of deception.
