Author, poet, actor, translator, tourist guide, teacber at the Alliance Française, Isaac Allegro Habib was born in Lubumbashi in 1951. He graduated with a B.A. degree in French and Spanish at the University of Cape Town.
He published in 2010 an anthology of poems entitled “La Djuderia de Rhodes” written in Ladino.
This is poetry from the heart, the evocation of tragic memories, but written in a taut, sober style…These poems also serve to keep alive the Judeo- Spanish language, which has managed to survive for so many centuries. Eliane de Saint-Martin
