This is an account of the Jewish community in central Africa, telling the story of the coming of the first Jews to the area in the late-19th century, the heyday of the Jewish community in the mid-20th century, and its decline since Zambian independence. Dealing primarily with the Jewish traders in Zambia who flourished in the face of both anti-Semitism and their own acute social dislocation, the author explores a number of interrelated topics: the Colonial Office discussions about Jewish immigration in the 1930s, the attempts to settle refugees in Africa by both pro- and anti-Semites, Jewish religious life in the region, and the remarkable cultural and professional role played by the Jewish settlers. These issues are set in the context of a general history of southern and central Africa.
