The outbreak of the Six Day War this month 53 years ago marked the final exodus of remnant Jewish communities from the Arab world.
Jews fled Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Aden. Iraq and Syria still considered their Jews hostages and did not allow them to leave. In Tunisia, a pogrom broke out on 6 June. A mob ran amok, destroying Jewish property and damaging the Great Synagogue
Here is rare footage of the riots in Tunis. As a result, 18,000 Jews fled, leaving all their possessions behind. Most left for France.
