In this webinar, UCLA professors Sarah Abrevaya Stein and Aomar Boum, discuss the effects of the Holocaust on the Jewish communities of North Africa and explore the diversity of pre-war Jewish life in Morocco, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia.
Boum and Stein delve into antisemitic legislation passed by different colonial powers as well as the development of labor, internment, and penal camps in the region where Jews were among those imprisoned. The experiences of North African Jews in these camps and in the concentration and death camps of Europe are an often untold history. Join us to explore how this came to be and learn tools to intentionally incorporate the Holocaust and North Africa into the broader discourse and into the curriculum.
