Product Description

Prof. Marion A. Kaplan has written this companion volume to the Museum exhibit- Sosua: A Refuge for Jews in the Dominican Republic, which opens Feb.17, 2008 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

This definitive history of the colony of German speaking Jews in the Dominican Republic expands our understanding of the challenges, opportunities and barriers to refugee settlement anywhere in the world. The book begins to answer many questions about this most peculiar case of refugee migration that changed the lives of those fleeing the horrors of Nazism and of those in the Dominican Republic who welcomed them.

The author, Marion Kaplan is Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History at New York University.
