Falafel and Film, with speakers Vivian Koenig and Dr. David Kazzaz

In 1948 with the establishment of the State of Israel, Jewish life outside of Isreal, in the Middle East and North Africa, dramatically began to disappear. From Casablanca to Baghdad, Jews abandoned their ancestral homelands often leaving behind their homes, communities and livelihoods suddenly becoming refugees. Contemporary footage of crumbling synagogues and empty Jewish quarters throughout the Arab world is a sad record of the complete eradication of once vibrant communities and the separation of these Jews not only from their land and possessions but also, in many respects, from their own identities. Directed by Michael Grynszpan and produced by Avi Goldwasser, the Forgotten Refugees won the “Best Featured Documentary” award at the Warsaw Jewish Film Festival and the “Best Documentary Film” award at the 2007 Marbella Film Festival.

Born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq, David Kazzaz attended college and medical school at the American University in Beirut in the 1940s. After marring his wife Louise in Israel in 1950, he pursued postdoctoral training in neurology at Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital before moving to the US to complete a psychiatric residency at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver. In 1959, Kazzaz and his young family returned to Israel after he was asked to institute a pilot community mental health program for the Israeli Department of Health. In 1962, the family settled permanently in Denver, where Dr. Kazzaz practiced psychiatry for 27 years.
