Raffael Scheck, the Audrey Wade Hittinger Katz Professor of History, was asked to be part of a conference and monument dedication in Saint-Médard-en-Jalles, a town in southwestern France, honoring the poet and philosopher Léopold Sédar Senghor, who served as Senegal’s first president (1960-1980). Unable to attend in person, Scheck recorded a six-minute video that opened a roundtable discussion, which can be seen here on the second video window toward the bottom of the page. Scheck had discovered new details about Senghor’s captivity in World War II, including the fact that he was captive in Saint-Médard for several months in 1941-42.
