RSVP to our Online Event “Terrorism’s Terrible Price: Assassination of Lord Moyne and Palestine’s Lost Opportunity for Peace”

March 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Center for Jewish Civilization invites you to Dr. Bruce Hoffman’s virtual lecture, “Terrorism’s Terrible Price: Assassination of Lord Moyne and Palestine’s Lost Opportunity for Peace.” RSVP to the lecture here! 

Dr. Bruce Hoffman’s virtual lecture will be accessible to all viewers via Zoom. Zoom invitations will be emailed to all those who RSVP. 

About the event:

Lord Moyne was the senior British official responsible for the Middle East during World War II. A member of Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s cabinet, he was also one of Churchill’s oldest friends and closest political allies. On November 6, 1944 he was assassinated by two gunmen. Moyne’s murder remains mostly forgotten or ignored. But, it had far-reaching consequences: extinguishing a key opportunity to resolve Palestine’s political future at an especially opportune moment and consigning a region and its people to seemingly perennial conflict.
