Satloff, a Jew, a professor with a young family, set off to live for three years in Morocco to trace Arabs who had risked themselves to save Jews in North Africa during the Holocaust. Years of research yielded only the thinnest of threads and while he did find evidence of heroic Arabs, few of their descendents have been willing to accept public commendation. This latter fact stays with me like a bad dream, or, rather, a sad dream. The political and social circumstances of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya during WWII were largely unknown to me and the book provides a fascinating civics lesson. Satloff points out that throughout history Jews have generally fared better under Muslim rule than Christian. Who knew? Certainly not me. Well worth reading.
