TEHRAN – Israeli professor of history Shlomo Sand’s 2008 book “The Invention of the Jewish People” has recently been published in Persian by Now Publications in Tehran.

Translated by Ahad Aliqolian, the book is a study of the historiography of the Jewish people.

Sand tries to find historical evidence of the forcible exile of Jews from the area now bordered by modern Israel, and its surrounding regions at the study but as he couldn’t find any proof, he concludes that the expulsion simply did not happen and no one exiled the Jewish people from the region, and therefore the Jewish diaspora is a modern invention.
