Moroccan Jews: Destinies Undone
A film by Younes LAGHRARI

Synopsis

For a while now, I have been asking myself a question about the actual reasons for the massive exile of Moroccan Jews from their ancestral land, and I have not found a convincing answer to this day.
This question, not relevant in Moroccan school history programs and rarely acknowledged in the media is starting to come up again through conferences and think tanks.

Today, no one is able to give a solid and straight explanation to the departure cycles of an ancient Jewish community, finding its roots in the far before Arab-Islamic conquered Morocco. There are several responses, all colliding and all the people involved have their own truth to it.
