About JDoC Latin America
The Latin America sub-collection of the Jewish Diaspora Collection (JDoC) provides access to a wide range of Judaic materials from Latin America. Included here are archives, such as the Morton D. Winsberg Photographs of Colonia Baron Hirsch and the Sara Gail Collection, the personal papers of a Jewish immigrant from Buenos Aires; as well as a range of important commemorative publications and periodicals, like the Price Library of Judaica’s unique set of anniversary newspapers from Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil.
The Morton D. Winsberg Photographs of Colonia Baron Hirsch includes photographs of the Colonia Baron Hirsch, primarily of the Jewish settlers, the homes and other buildings, modes of transportation, and the agriculture and livestock of the colony. The majority of the photographs are not dated, but those with dates are from 1930 to 1946. In addition to these photographic prints, there are a small number of graphic images used by Dr. Winsberg in his book entitled Colonia Baron Hirsch: A Jewish Agricultural Colony in Argentina. The graphics portray population estimates according to date, age, and sex, as well as maps of the colony and the surrounding region.
