Stories of Jewish Immigration to Latin America

People of several generations recount the stories of how their Jewish families immigrated from Europe to countries in Latin America including Mexico, Argentina, and Cuba. The history of the Jews in Latin America dates back to the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. By the 16th century, fully functioning Jewish communities existed in Brazil, Suriname, Curaçao, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Barbados. In addition, there were unorganized communities of Jews in the Spanish and Portuguese territories, where the Inquisition was active, including Cuba, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
