Family History Today: Jewish Refugees & the U.S.-Mexico Border Live on Zoom
Online - Center for Jewish History
New York, NY
Share this event:

Between the world wars, more than 200,000 Jewish refugees fleeing Europe and the Middle East found a safe haven in Latin America, where immigration restrictions were less stringent and more easily circumvented than in the U.S. and British-controlled Palestine. While some of these refugees permanently settled in Latin America, many more emigrated again, primarily to the U.S. and Israel. In this presentation, Moriah Amit, the Center for Jewish History's senior genealogy librarian, will explore the lesser-known history of Jewish refugee immigration to the U.S. via Latin America. Additionally, for those whose ancestors came to America through this route, Moriah will explain how to locate records that will shed light on their journey.

Please Note: Patrons who are sharing a computer to view the program need only reserve one ticket.

This program is sponsored by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute; it is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
