Yellow Star and Swastika. The Jews of Tunisia facing the Nazis - Robert Borgel
The Shoah brushed against Tunisia. The Jews there were persecuted, but the Nazis were not able to inflict on Tunisian Jewry the special treatment reserved for the Jewish populations which fell under their domination.
Robert Borgel, a barrister in Tunis, and his father Moïse, president of the town’s Jewish community, were major players in this drama. Robert Borgel describes here in especially lively detail how the community leaders managed to save their fellow Jewish citizens detained by the worst of criminals.
Thanks to Claude Nataf's very precise critical apparatus, this account takes on a historical dimension.
