SPIES IN THE PROMISED LAND: UNTANGLING THE LAVON AFFAIR
Time & Location
About the Event
The Lavon Affair (also called Esek HaBish or “The Mishap”) is a controversial spy story revolving around nearly a dozen young Egyptian Jews who agreed to carry out sabotage in their home country in 1954, and who were eventually discovered by the Egyptian police. The affair taps into the idealism and self-sacrifice of the undercover agents as well as an unwillingness to take responsibility by Israeli officials. The failed covert operation reverberated for decades.
