Jewish Refugees in Portugal

Learn about a little-known chapter of Jewish history: the tens of thousands of Jewish WWII refugees who lived in limbo in Portugal before reaching safer havens abroad. Award-winning historian Marion Kaplan, a three-time National Jewish Book award winner, presents an emotional history of Jewish refugees biding their time in Portugal. Watch this online presentation by Professor Kaplan on the Museum of Jewish Heritage’s website
