Synopsis: This book tells the story of refuge, integration and regeneration. Through interviews and reliance on archival material, it recounts the lives of thirty six Jewish men and women, who emigrated to or were born in Cuba in the last century, who became part of the Cuban social fabric and whose presence in Cuba after 1959 kept the spirit of Judaism alive. They lived their Jewishness in very different ways, but all---in one way or another---lived it and shared its traditions.
The book is divided into three sets of interviews that frame the most significant temporal, geographic and ideological aspects that characterize this immigration.
