Birthday of Albert Memmi, 1920

On This Day in Jewish History: December 15, 1920

On this day, 1920, Jewish-Tunisian author Albert Memmi was born in Tunis, Tunisia. Considered an outcast due to his Jewishness, Memmi was submerged in French culture and placed within a largely-Muslim population from a young age.
