  1. It is a poignant year….I will be attending the 75th anniversary of the founding of Sosua, in the Dominican Republic. In 1938, a reluctant gathering of 38 nations met at Evian – les – Baines France, more than 200 hundred delegates, observers and journalists as well as representatives of 21 American Jewish Organizations, to assisst the desperate Jewish emigrents fleeiing the encroching Nazi net of deportations. Not ANY of those attending extended concrete offers to help save the jews consumed with leaving the inhospitable Europe. …ONLY ONE country responded by offering a safe haven, and opened it's doors, the Dominican Republic. 500 + people eventually arrived in Sosua, between 1940 and 1950, the community founded for one purpose only, to save Jewish lives which included my parents my sister and I. When we gather in May, It willl be very emotional …so many of the settlers are gone,but those us who are still here and our offspring will again offer our gratitude to the country,which saved us and celebrate life! SOSUA L'CHAIM!
