Work was reported here today to have started on the razing of the Mellah in the city of Tunis as part of a major modernization of the city.
The project will leave many Jews in the Mellah homeless. The Tunisian Government has pledged it will resettle such homeless Jews in modern structures but has not made any specific decisions on details of such resettlement.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
