"Out of Cordoba" is an award-winning documentary film by Jacob Bender, CAIR-Philadelphia's Executive Director. The film explores the dramatic life and times of Averroes and Maimonides, the two leading personalities to emerge from the multifaith culture of medieval Muslim Spain. Filmed in the USA, Spain, Morocco, France, Italy, Egypt, Israel, and Palestine, and 10 years in the making, "Out of Cordoba" is a powerful plea for interfaith understanding in our own often violent times.

In 1944, after defeating the Nazis and liberating Paris in World War II, a group of African soldiers – from all over West Africa – report to a transit camp near Dakar. Many of the soldiers were prisoners of war of the Germans following the fall of France in 1940.
