Arab Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
Few people know that the Holocaust extended beyond the European continent, into the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. There, Nazi Germany, Vichy France and Fascist Italy sent thousands of Jews to forced labor and set up dozens of concentration camps for both local Jews and Jewish refugees from Europe. For 20 years, Dr. Robert Satloff has been on a quest to find Arabs who rescued Jews from this persecution. The result is the powerful film, Among the Righteous: Lost Stories from the Holocaust in Arab Lands, and a companion book.
