This chapter reviews the book The Burdens of Brotherhood: Jews and Muslims from North Africa to France (2015), by Ethan B. Katz. In The Burdens of Brotherhood, Katz explores Jewish-Muslim relations in twentieth-century France, challenging conceptions of these relations as fixed and necessarily hostile. Katz chronicles the development of sociocultural spaces that were shared by North African Jews and Muslims in urban France from the Great War until the end of the twentieth century. He questions the notion that the two groups necessarily comprehended their interactions as those between “Jews” and “Muslims,” arguing that, in certain situations, Jews and Muslims perceived each other as members of a shared North African community.
