Hello all! I visit this wonderful site every time I feel nostalgic for my home town Alexandria. I attended L'école de la communauté Isrealite de L'Alexandrie 1955-1965. Wonderful childhood memories of life that will never come back except in quick flashes of our memories. If any one on this site went to my school or lived in Alexandria near Navi Daniel synagogue, Mahatet el Raml, I would love to hear from you. All my love to all of you and our beloved Alexandria the way it was during our childhood.

I am looking for any history of member of my mother's family.  She and her family lived in Alexandria, Egypt and later my mother moved to Cairo during WWII.  Her family name was Ades (father's name) and her mother's family was Heffernan or Heifetz.  The Heifetz's came from Aleppo, Syria and after 1956 they moved to Jamaica and then to Florida in the USA.  Edouard Ades is my uncle.  My great uncles were Michael and Abraham Heifetz.  Do you have any records of these people?

I was born in cairo in May 1948. My Father is Elie Behor Fiss,  born in 1911 in Alexandria.

I went to primary school at Collège des Frêres, Cairo. Left Egypt in June 1957 by boat, first to Italy then to Israel. After a few months, my parents decided to settle in Geneva, Switzerland.

I know very little about my Father's family. Would love to learn more about the family's history.

Am Israel Hai.

I'm a descendant of the Castros, Green, and Dorras of Alexandria Egypt. My father was born there in 1924. My grandmother was Aimee Castro Dorra. Her mother was a Green.
There is a post on here from 2013 from a Solomon Green living in London. There doesn't seem to be a way to contact him. Do you have any way to put me in touch with him? I'm trying to research the Castros, Greens, Dorras and Mastalons (all of my family branches)
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

Dear all,

I am a student at the American University in Cairo and I am writing my thesis about the events of 1967 in Egypt. I understand that on the first day of the war, Jewish men were arrested and taken to prison, and only released when they agreed to give up their Egyptian citizenship.

I am interested in speaking to anyone who has any memories of this event, which deserves to be documented and remembered. Please contact me by email at katie_halls@hotmail.com if you would be willing to speak to me.

Best wishes to all,

My name is Danielle Souery.
I have numerous recollections,( like a ghost )of the many times my father Maurice Souery, spoke of how he fled Cairo Egypt as a young boy, his head covered, he was a red head, jewish, with his mother, Sarah Shalem Souery.
My paternal Grandmother Sarah was a seamstress of Haute Couture, in Egypt and in Australia.
My father has very bad memories of the event. When I was my sons age, approx 7 years, he would speak of seeing people thrown out of windows being stabbed and murdered.His father Clement, was waiting for them at the boat out of Egypt. For years I had wanted to know more of my Middle Eastern Heritage, which my father did not embrace.
Maurice, my father said he did not speak arabic, however my mother an Ashkenazi Jewess said she did not believe it.The denial was because he didnt want to identify with Egypt, due to his circumstance.
His father Clement Souery, brother Edward Souery and Nick Souery, opened the first Sepharadi Synagogue in Melbourne Victoria Australia. I feel extremely sad for my father, his father who had his 1st heart attack before leaving Egypt, a bank manager who was offered a new and better position than his previous one and took it, before the revolution and having to flee with his family and told all  his assets were frozen, they could take nothing out of the country.
My father was educated in France, and as most Europeans in Egypt, and other colonies, spoke numerous languages including French, which they- all his family and still speaks
My father Maurice Souery is now approx mid to late 70's and not in perfect health
I had not met his father, my Grandfather Clement Souery, who rowed daily along The Nile, before he went to work, in Egypt. Clement died in Caulfield Hospital  of a 2nd, heart attack in my fathers arms after fleeing Egypt in Melbourne Australia. If anyone has information please let me know of history. Many Thanks for Website. Danielle Souery

Hi! I'm Ellie, I came across this website while researching my family history.  My great-great grandparents and their children were born in Alexandria and I have been having the hardest time finding more information about their family tree, especially with my great great grandmother's last name, Banoun, which seems to be really uncommon.  If anyone has any information please email me!
