Jewish Museum

Discover the story of the industrious Europeans who fled Nazi Europe – after obtaining visas from then Dominican leader and dictator Rafael Trujillo – and rebuilt their lives as cattle ranchers and farmers in Sosúa, on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic in the 1940s. Through black and white photographs, letters and historical displays, the Jewish Museum tells and commemorates the lives and history of the Dominican Republic’s Jewish community and its important role in the thriving meat and dairy industry.
