A Matter of Time

This 2-part documentary film tells the little-known story of the Jewish communities of North Africa during World War II, revealing how, had fate not intervened, it was only “a matter of time” until they would have shared the fate of their fellow Jews in Europe. Through archival and new footage, and interviews with surviving eyewitnesses and historians, the film depicts Jewish life in North Africa and describes the evidence of plans by German and Italian occupiers to carry out “the final solution” far from the shores of Europe.It describes the impact of racial laws, property confiscations, and the establishment of forced labor concentration camps in North Africa which create a unified sense of Jewish history.
