Part 5 : Morocco after the Great War and attempts to overcome the crisis (1916-1921)
Collection titleTwentieth Century Morocco
First broadcast date06/05/2004
AbstractThe fifth episode of the series "Twentieth Century Morocco" deals with the situation in Morocco during the First World War. With the outbreak of the war, the French needs for food products increased, so it turned to its colonies to fetch agricultural products, mainly grains. It also recruited Moroccans to support its armed forces. This was at the expense of the local market where prices rose, mainly those of basic food such as oil, sugar, tea, which led to people's impoverishment. So as not to give the impression that France was suffering from a crisis due to war, the General Governor, Marshal Lyautey, launched social and economic projects.
