Hispanic Heritage Month Presentation at Stockton University: "Sosúa: The Role of the Dominican Republic during WWII,"
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month at Stockton University Los Latinos Unidos and the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center present a lecture by Irvin Moreno-Rodriguez, assistant director of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center: "Sosúa: The Role of the Dominican Republic during WWII." In 1938, the United States called for a meeting in Évian, France to discuss the "problem" of Jewish refugees seeking to flee Nazi Germany. Out of the 32 countries that attended the conference, now known as the Évian Conference, the Dominican Republic was the only country that agreed to accept Jewish refugees. Come and listen to the story of how one country made a difference. The lecture will take place in the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center Classroom at Stockton University (second floor of the Stockton University Library), on Thursday, September 22, 2022, from 4:30 pm to 5:45 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Questions: 609-652-4699
