The Southern Africa Diaspora Oral History Project

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.

Interviews have begun and will continue over the coming few years.

If you would like to be interviewed, or would like to nominate an interviewee, please contact:
