Jews in Independent Morocco
This chapter analyzes the place of Jews in post-independence Moroccan society through their representation in national museums. Looking at conflicting narratives of different Muslim cohorts, the chapter highlights tensions in the national debate about the status of Jews in Morocco. It exposes the challenges that Moroccan society faces in its attempts to represent the national past in museums and other state institutions including educational. It also demonstrates the discrepancies between official discourse and public sentiments about Jews in particular and other minorities in general. Internationally, the government promotes Morocco as a nation of Jewish-Muslim historical symbiosis and contemporary tolerance. Nationally, the state has maintained a relative silence about its Jewish history and culture.
