Memories of Discrimination, Memories of Tolerance: Jewish and Protestant minorities in southern France museums

Abstract : As minority religions in France, the Protestants and Jews carry memories resulting from a particular kind of relationship to dominant society. Both experienced phases of very strong discrimination and persecutions. Museum current initiatives about this past highlight the dialectic couplet of "discrimination/tolerance" and tend to give the histories of these groups unique significance within national history. Far from being reduced to particularism, their experiences thereby acquire a universal scope in the emergence of democratic and pluralistic values.
