From the Ottoman Empire to Auschwitz: Sephardic Jews and the Holocaust

Hosted By: National Library of Israel USA (NLI USA)

Although usually understood as a “European” event, the Holocaust also resulted in the murder of tens of thousands of Jews born in the Muslim world of the Ottoman Empire. Grappling with the distinctiveness of the experiences of Sephardic Jews, including the center of the Ladino-speaking Sephardic Jewish world in Salonica (Thessaloniki, in today’s Greece), compels us to expand the scope of the Holocaust into the Mediterranean world, to link it to other acts of mass violence in the region such as the Armenian genocide, and to better grasp the full reach and destruction of the Final Solution.
