Sephardim, Holocaust and Diasporic Memory: the Jews from the Island of Rhodes

Start: Oct 21, 2013 6:00:00 PM

Aron Rodrigue
The ancient Ottoman Sephardic Jewish community of the island of Rhodes was deported to Auschwitz in June 1944 and perished there. Rhodes Jewry had come under Italian rule in 1912 and had undergone profound cultural and socio-political transformations in the decades that followed. It had also seen large scale waves of emigration, to North and South America, and to Africa, most notably to the Belgian Congo and Southern Rhodesia. This lecture will survey these developments and then will focus on the diaspora of Rhodes Jew, especially after the Holocaust when the mother community disappeared. Separated by large distances, Jews of Rhodes origin maintained close contacts with each other across continents, produced memoirs and periodicals and created a strong network of ties. We will explore how and why such an unusual and distinctive Sephardic global diasporic identity was created by Rhodes Jews and their descendants and has managed to last till our own day.
