Re: Havana, Cuba: Class Pictures Centro Israelita, 1942-43 #photographs


Although my family was in Cuba during the war years, my brother was too young to have attended this school.

If anyone reading this had family in Cuba at that time, I recommend a documentary called "Cuba's Forgotten Jewels:  A Haven in Havana".  It tells of the experience of Jewish refugees in Cuba, with a particular focus on the diamond industry that was brought to Cuba by Belgian immigrants, and the refugees who worked in this industry.
