Memories of Absence

This section concludes that while the great-grandparent and grandparent generations continue to nostalgically discuss the richness of Jewish-Muslim life in the past, the younger generation demonstrates narrow and misinformed perspectives of Jews. The disseminated representations of Jews vary from one generational group to another both in content and in their channels of mediation. They are part of a shift in identity referents in contemporary Moroccan society. Culturally, Moroccan youth are constructing a new self that is still anchored in Islamic values while adapting to and appropriating foreign ideas.
