    In this class, the historian, a specialist in the Middle East with extensive experience in the region, Monique Sochaczewski, presents a brief history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to then point out the non-obvious side of this : the recent large presence of foreign workers in Israel, from countries such as Vietnam and Romania, and asylum seekers, mainly Eritreans and Sudanese. Understand some of the complexity of these two groups within the already complicated Israeli society today, and see how books, movies and series help to understand part of this theme.
