Opening Sunday, July 14th, from 2PM - 3:30PM
In the summer of 1938, delegates from thirty-two countries met to discuss a plan of action in response to the Jewish refugee crisis in Europe. At the end of these meetings, it was only the Dominican Republic that agreed to allow a limited number of Jewish immigrants.
Find out more about the experiences of these refugees as they arrived in the Dominican Republic, and how the town of Sosua became a Jewish agricultural settlement. This program will feature Kitty Loewy, the daughter of one of those resettled Jews, and a screening of a 1941 promotional film.
Free with Museum admission.
