Salo W. Baron Program

Celebrated writer Lucette Lagnado returns to the Museum to share her recent research on the Jews of Tunisia.  She will focus on the shrinking Jewish community of the nation’s capital, Tunis, and the more stable, even flourishing, population in the city of Djerba, two contrasting worlds in one Arab country.  Lagnado is the author of the memoirs The Arrogant Years: One Girl’s Search for Her Lost Youth, from Cairo to Brooklyn and The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit: My Family's Exodus from Old Cairo to the New World, which won the Jewish Book Council's Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature in 2008.

The Salo W. Baron Program has been endowed by the Trustees of the Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Foundation
