Event description

Description

The JDC Archives invites you to a public program: "The JDC and the Jews of Alsace and Algeria, 1940-1963."

Lauren Henry is a Doctoral Candidate in the Department of History at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and the recipient of the 2019 Ruth and David Musher/JDC Archives Regional Fellowship. Her research at the JDC Archives concerns JDC’s work in France and Algeria from 1940 to 1963.

In this lecture, Ms. Henry will explore how the Second World War and the Algerian War created unexpected connections between the Jewish communities of Alsace and Algeria. In particular, she will examine the JDC’s role in helping to manage the massive displacements of these conflicts: from the flight of Alsatian Jews to Algeria during World War II, to the migration of Algerian Jews to Alsace after the Algerian War.

Admission is complimentary, but an RSVP is required to receive location details.
