Deutschland in Ägypten
Orientalistische Netzwerke, Judenverfolgung und das Leben der Frankfurter Jüdin Mimi Borchardt
[Germany in Egypt: Orientalist Networks, Persecution of the Jews, and the Life of the Frankfurt Jew Mimi Borchardt]
Aims and Scope
Beyond the romance of the Orient, early 20th century Egypt had an unknown facet: it was home to a minority German population. After the Nazis took power, however, circumstances changed, and Germans of Jewish origin were targeted for persecution. Egyptologist Ludwig Borchardt and his wife, Mimi Cohen, launched a relief campaign supported by an international orientalist network, which made Egypt its headquarters starting in 1933.
