Jewish immigrants to Paraguay arrived at the end of the 19th century, however they failed to establish a community and merged with the native population. A Jewish community and synagogue were only founded in 1917 when a number of families arrived from Palestine. Their numbers significantly increased during the Nazi occupation of Europe when around 15,000 and 20,000 Jews came to Paraguay or used Paraguay as a stepping stone to Argentina, Brazil or Uruguay. In spite of good relations between Paraguay and the State of Israel and relatively low rates of anti-Semitism, the Paraguay Jewish community has dwindled to approximately 1,000 members today.

Jewish life in Rio de Janeiro began in the 16th century when many Jews came to the country as 'New Christians' and others arrived individually as merchants and immigrants. A large wave of Jewish immigration occurred after the First World War and a well-organized community emerged that successfully integrated into the economic, social and cultural structure of Brazilian life. This book brings together memoires and documents about the Jewish immigrants of diverse backgrounds who came to Brazil during this period as well as a survey based on 200 hours of taped interviews with Jewish immigrants.
