An Englishman and the Mossad in Casablanca
The Clandestine Emigration of 530 Moroccan Jewish Children to Israel
Operation Mural chronicles a brave 1961 Mossad mission, based on the recently declassified minutes. A spellbound and often chilling account of what it took to smuggle 530 Moroccan Jewish children to Israel via a holiday-camp in Switzerland, re-counted by one of its main operatives, David G. Littman.
“A document of historical importance for the history of the Aliya of Moroccan Jews to Israel. I am sure that this book will in the future be read to the next generation so as to prove the heroic operation of one man.”
Deputy Head of the Mossad (1953–1976), former Knesset member,
and adviser on Arab Affairs to Prime Ministers Golda Meir, Levy Eshkol, and Yitzhak Rabin
