The Archives du Maroc and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have signed an agreement in Rabat allowing the two institutions to exchange archives related to Maghreb Jews during the Second World War, says MAP news agency.

The initiative aims to further enrich the national historical records and preserve the Judeo-Moroccan heritage, allowing Archives du Maroc to become a research center for countries in the region, stated head of the Moroccan archives, Jamaa Baida.

The Archives du Maroc and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum of Washington DC, now partners, will work together to promote human values, recognizing differences and fighting against obscurantism and radicalism, says the same source.

This ceremony was attended by King Mohammed VI's adviser, André Azoulay, the U.S. charge d'affaires, Stéphanie Miley and the president of the Israelite community in Rabat, David Tolédano, who hailed King Mohammed V’s initiatives during the Second World War.
