This research with Jewish community members from Tunisia explores memories of loss and survival in the Second World War and its impacts on current and future coexistence with non-Jewish others.
Researchers into the Holocaust have commented on the lack of investigation into the experiences of the Sephardim in the North African context (Abitbol 1989, Ward 1999, Laskier 1992). Ward emphasises that the experience of Central and Eastern European Jewish communities predominate in holocaust discourse despite the diversity of non-Ashkenazi communities affected not in only in North Africa but in also in Sephardi populations in the Mediterranean lands as a whole.
This project will provide a voice for North African Jews to tell their stories as part of a participatory, collaborative research process.
