Preserving cemeteries, knowledge and inter-cultural relationships

Grave in Christian Cemetery with Arabic and Hebrew inscription

I started working with the High Atlas Foundation just a month ago and I am very pleased to join such a dedicated, committed and talented team. I am based in the laid-back seaside city of Essaouira, where I am responsible for managing HAF’s Cultural Preservation and Education Project, and helping to bring new development opportunities in rural parts of the province.

The goal of the year-long Cultural project is to clean up and initiate a preservation and maintenance program for the Moslem, Christian and Jewish cemeteries in Essaouira, which stand as present-day reminders of the rich, multicultural past that this small city has had, where Arab and Berber Moslems, Jews and Christians shared a town, a life, work, a culture, and language.
