We were fortunate enough to welcome Haim to Brighton on the 12th of April. He enlightened us with his talk the history of the so-called ‘left’ in Israel.
Many in the audience were so inspired by Haim’s talk that they asked for links to his website, and to related websites.
The links are provided below, together with some of the background information about Haim that was included in the advance publicity.

“Most of my family was destroyed in the Holocaust – in concentration camps and in the Warsaw Ghetto. I was born in a refugee camp in Italy immediately after the War. I’m not saying this in order to elicit sympathy … but in order to explain why it is so easy for me to understand the Palestinians in Gaza and in the rest of Palestine. It is easy for me to understand because they live in a combination of concentration camp and Warsaw Ghetto for so many years that we have stopped counting.”
