Share this article

How does a polyglot Jewish family from Alexandria, Egypt, get caught up in the power play of the Suez Crisis? In this fascinating ebook Egyptian-born author and Tolerance.ca Editor Victor Teboul writes about his cosmopolitan experience and his family’s ordeal following the 1956 Suez Crisis and the expulsion of Egypt’s Jewish community. 

"Strangely enough, in Alexandria, we spoke so many languages and yet I do not remember anyone asking me to define my nationality. As if being multinational was the norm", recalls Victor Teboul as he describes in this revealing ebook the cosmopolitan flavour of his hometown and the abrupt departure of Egypt’s Jews. 

In this intellectually stimulating ebook Victor Teboul revisits our age-old concepts of tolerance and multiculturalism. 

Enjoy reading this book on your computer or any other mobile device. Available on Amazon and on Kobobooks.
