JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS of Montreal meeting TONIGHT Monday, August 12 #general

Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>
 

The JGS of Montreal, in association with the
Jewish Public Library, presents:
Dr. Simon Kreindler
"Sugar, Slavery & the Jews of Barbados 1654-1934

In the mid-1600's, James Drax introduced sugar cane to Barbados and
within a very few years turned the island into England's wealthiest
Atlantic colony. Over the following 30 years Jews were very involved
in sugar cultivation and production there. They eventually
established a vibrant Jewish community on the island and built a
beautiful synagogue in the capital, Bridgetown. This presentation
looks at the Jews' success; their ultimate demise; and the legacy
they left the island.
