Consular Series: Rescue in the Caribbean

Selected date

Sunday July 14

Selected time

2:00 PM  –  3:30 PM

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 admit 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 admission.  Reservations required.
