Ma’abarot

A four episodes documentary series that unveils one of the most controversial topics in the history of the Israeli state. Rare archival materials and testimonials of former residents tell the stories of the 'Ma'abrot' (refugee absorption camps meant to provide accommodation for the large influx of Jewish refugees in Israel in the 1950s), and the institutional discrimination towards its inhabitants - Jewish immigrants from North Africa and Middle East.
