The Jewish community's place in French society
Date created :
France is home to the largest Jewish community in Europe. But their quest for a place in French society has been a turbulent one. In some towns, the Jewish population has been divided by six in recent years as Jewish families leave to escape anti-Semitic acts. We look back on history and see how the Jewish community and local associations are trying to fight daily prejudice. We also talk about new forms of anti-Semitism and their origins with sociologist Michel Wieviorka.
