Episode 8 : Morocco between famine, the outbreak of the World War II and the allies landing (1935-1944)
Collection titleTwentieth century Morocco
First broadcast date02/17/2005
AbstractMorocco knew many events in the period from 1935 to 1945. Among them was the uprising against the law passed by the French occupation to regulate the course of justice in areas regulated by Berber conventions. Despite the cancellation of that law in 1934, the national resistance in Morocco no longer trusted the French occupation. The northern region that was under the Spanish occupation has lost many people recruited by Franco in the civil war against the Republicans. In 1937, drought and famine affected Morocco and caused a rural exodus to big cities, mainly Casablanca. With the establishment of the Vichy regime in France, the French extreme right in Morocco persecuted the Moroccan Jews.
