Red Sea Spies: The True Story of Mossad's Fake Diving Resort

In the early 1980s, on a remote part of the Sudanese coast, a new luxury resort opened for business. Little did the guests know that the staff members were undercover spies, working for the Mossad - the Israeli Secret Service. Written by longtime BBC Middle East correspondent, Raffi Berg, Red Sea Spies: The True Story of Mossad's Fake Diving Resort tells the true story that inspired the recent Netflix drama The Red Sea Diving Resort. What began with one cryptic message pleading for help later turned into the secret evacuation of thousands of Ethiopian Jews, and the spiriting of them to Israel.

In conversation with Debbie Cenziper, investigative journalist based in Washington DC and author of Citizen 865: The Hunt for Hitler's Hidden Soldiers in America.
