We covered a wide range of subjects - the importance of oral history, the challenges of interviewing during Covid-19, the similarities and differences of experience for Jews across the Middle East, North Africa and Iran and general history of the region. This podcast is absolutely packed full of everything Sephardi Voices UK!
From Ask Historians:
"Tyler Alderson talks with Dr. Bea Lewkowicz and Daisy Abboudi from Sephardi Voices UK, records the oral histories of the Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews from the Middle East, North Africa and Iran who settled in the UK.
While narratives of history often paint with a wide brush, individual oral histories create a stunning portrait of everyday life amid the upheavals of the 20th century.
The episode also includes clips from various interviews in the Sephardi Voices UK archives."
