Libya 1945

Lillo Arbib


This paper is taken from a book by Lillo Arbib, published by the author at his own expenses (Ebrei in Libia tra Idris e Gheddafi, 1947-1970. Pagine di storia contemporanea [“Jews in Libya between Idris and Gheddafi, 1947-1970. Pages of Contemporary History”]. Israel: Bat Yam, 1970, pp. 1-24). It is a living testimony of the 1945 pogrom in Libya. At that time Arbib was the secretary of the Tripolitan Jewish Community. In 1948 he assumed the presidency of the Tripolitan Jewish Community. After the 1948 pogrom, he took part in the meeting on the American aircraft carrier Keaserge, in which there was stipulated the agreement that made possible the mass exodus of the Jewish community to Israel.
