Panel Discussion, Homage to Children of the Colonies

Oral History | Accession Number: 2009.29.41 | RG Number: RG-50.590.0041

This public assembly requested from the audience to share memories, anecdotes, jokes, customs, and even gossip from the life in the colonies.
Participants were: Mr. Guiger (remembering Noe Katzovich, Iosef Draznin, Hirsch Kalier and Avreiml Arcadi); Naum Guelber; Pablo Novick; Moises Goldman; Salomon Dosoretz; Esther Resnik; Arminio Seiferel; Frida Gutman’s daughter; Tzivia Shujman; Mr. Waksemberg; Sanson Wolmark; Elsa Noskovich; Eliyahu Toker; Hugo Ostrower; and Ambassador Baltierrez.
One item of significance brought out by this assembly: the Alliance Israelite Universelle was the institution that gave the philanthropist Baron de Hirsch de idea of purchasing lands in Argentina, in order to save European Jews being persecuted and killed, by bringing them to Argentina to work the land. That became the Jewish Colonization Association (JCA) that began in 1891. Moises Goldman made a point to go to Paris and thank Dr. Israel, deputy of the European Parliament and member of the Alliance, for suggesting the successful enterprise.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
