1 Federation Way, Irvine, CA 92603

Scholar David Mendelsohn in conversation with Rafram Chadad about his ordeals and quite unbelievable story of imprisonment by the Ghaddafi regime. In 2010 Chadad was asked to take photographs of sites of Libyan-Jewish interest when he was arrested as a spy. He documented this questionable adventure in a book titled "Rafram's Guide to the Libyan Prison" published in 2012 and soon to come out in English translation. Chaddad, an Israeli artist and cook with dual Tunisian-Israeli citizenship, will share the story of his imprisonment and how he was finally released, not through state-to-state negotiations, but the efforts of an Austrian businessman.
