A definitive history of this small and evanescent colony of German speaking Jews in the Dominican Republic, 'Dominican Haven' expands our understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and barriers to refugee settlement anywhere in the world. ---Judith Laikin Elkin, Author of the 'Jews in Latin America' and founder of the Latin America Jewish Studies Association. Associate of the Frankel Center for Judaic Studies, The University of Michigan 'Dominican Haven' begins to answer so many of the questions we long held about this most peculiar case of refugee migration that changed the lives of those fleeing the horror of Nazism and of those in the Dominican Republic that welcomed them ----Ramona Hernandez, Professor of Sociology and the Director of the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute, The City College of New York
