The Southern Africa Diaspora Oral History Project

SA Oral History Gazelle Logo - sq

The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to launch the Southern Africa Diaspora Oral History Project, our latest effort to document the comprehensive history of Jews in BC.

Jews from Southern African countries including South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, and Namibia, have contributed to the BC Jewish community in countless ways over the past three decades. It is our goal to collect the memories of these community members over the coming years – both their experiences in BC and those during their time prior to arrival here.

As the first stage of this project, we will be hosting two sets of training workshops this fall to familiarize volunteer interviewers with digital recording technology and equip them with the necessary skills to carry out oral history interviews.

If you would like to attend these workshops, or would like to nominate an interviewee, please RSVP to info@jewishmuseum.ca
