Jewish Museum of Sosúa

The Jewish Museum charts the arrival and settlement of Jewish migrants in the bay of Sosúa. In 1938, at the Evian Conference, only the Dominican Republic agreed to welcome Jewish refugees. They were granted land that formerly belonged to an American banana company. In this untamed spot, some 600 refugees built the village of El Batey, now the town's tourist hub and still home to the synagogue.
