This panel exhibit, on loan from the Kupferberh Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College in New York, highlights the role of the DR as the only country willing to offer refuge to Europe’s Jews after the Evian Conference. Dominican president General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo offered settlement to 100,000 Jews and 5,000 visas were offered. However, in the end, only 645 Jews went to safety in the Dominican Republic. Although life was difficult as these families transitioned from professional life to agricultural life, they were not subjected to Antisemitism and were allowed to flourish both culturally and religiously. Few Jews are left in this now-resort community, but it will always be known for the role it played in saving lives during the Holocaust.
