After their liberation by Napoleon, French Jews thought “liberté, fraternité, égalité” included them too. The Occupation and collaborationist activity proved otherwise. Today, there is renewed anti-semitism that has several results. Some French Jews have made aliyah to Israel, while others are enjoying Jewish life in France. Today there is renewed anti-semitism. My pictures reflect the change in conditions in France over the past 30 years
