Research in Egypt 1930s-1940s? #general


A. E. Jordan
 

Has anyone done any research into the Jewish community in Egypt in the 1930s and 1940s?  I am trying to find some information on someone who I was told published a newspaper in Egypt in that time frame.

Thanks

Try searching the 1941 Egypt directory at
https://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/DirectoryEgypt1941.html

or other databases in the Egypt section of 
https://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/databases.html

Good luck.

Last December I published an index of Jewish surnames in Cairo in the 20th century:

Am working now on Alexandria. There are 4 Jewish weeklies that were  published it that period both in Cairo and Alexandria(all in French).

Which surname are you looking for?

Jacob Rosen

Allan,

Could this be the Egyptian newspaper you seek?

A lot more detail at:
https://web.nli.org.il/sites/jpress/english/pages/israel_egypt.aspx
"The newspaper Israël was established in 1920 by Dr. Albert Mosseri, a member of the venerable Jewish elite of Egypt, and one of the foremost leaders of the Zionist movement in his country. "

Thanks. I wish but it is not the right person. The family name I am chasing is KAPLUN.
