Introduction

Selected Sites in Tunisia

In the summer of 2016, the photographer Chrystie Sherman visited Tunisia to document Jewish sites (synagogues, schools, cemeteries) throughout the country.

During her trip, she encountered both sides of Tunisia’s Jewish heritage: the vibrant and colorful synagogues and communities of Djerba and Tunis, and the eerily empty synagogues and schools of the country’s interior such as in Matmata and Tatouine.

See what she saw as you take your very own journey to Tunisia through this interactive Diarna exhibit.
