Diversity and Eloquence: Jewish Life in Wartime North Africa
Hosted By: Haberman Institute
Sarah Abrevaya Stein has spent a decade seeking out the voices of those who experienced fascist rule in Vichy-controlled Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia, Nazi-controlled Tunisia, and Italian-fascist Libya. The diversity and eloquence of their accounts is staggering. Theirs are the voices of oracles, critics, resistance fighters, soldiers, narrators, translators, philanthropists, and religious leaders; Jews, Muslims, and Christians; women, men, and children; people of all races, classes, and regions; local North Africans, the displaced, and refugees from Europe.
Join this presentation as Prof. Stein surveys the historical landscape of World War Two era North Africa, exploring histories of race laws, internment, forced labor, deportation, and the everyday experiences of the region’s Jewish children, women, and men.
