Jews in Uruguay





On the Uruguayan who died in the Holocaust, by Dr. Juan Raul Ferreira.
One day a survivor spoke of Uruguayans in the fields … For a long tried to get some data and nothing. Say if a survivor of Uruguay. No citizen but born in Uruguay and a survivor who lives in Brazil. Thus began the search for other identities. Life is a long history, the mine was allowed to cross with that of Eve. There I went to the Chancellor, then Gonzalo Fernandez and told him the story. Those days Gonzalo asked to take charge of the issue to Ambassador Bernardo Greiver, today Ambassador of Uruguay in Israel. Saving detail, we found the item that a photocopy of Naciomiento keep on your desktop.

By having it in my hands I wept. Not sure why but explain what happened. Bernardo well placed in the hands of the President to hours of his trip this important document. I have where a copy for the museum of the Holocaust.

The mayor Ehrlich responded quickly to the request we will do next to entnonces Ambassador of Israel Barnea Joel and thus was born the monolith and the plate. Such a twist of fate the day before the opening ceremony, I was operated on emergency and only the British could do something for the press. After the mayor handed me a copy of your generous words.

The day I was discharged, before returning home, I passed by and left a stone monument. I could not answer why. But Anna Balog touched my life in a tremendously special. I remember every day and almost automatically repeat the words:

Welcome to your home dear fellow.

  1. last time I was in Uruguay was with the Yiddish Art Theatre and my father Maurice Schwartz in the middle 1950s. I am considering coming to Uruguay. Where would be a comfortable place for my husband I to live and meet artists and performers?
    Thanks for your advise. Risa Whiting
