Abstract:

In 1889, eight hundred Russian Jews landed in Argentina and became stranded on the desolate Pampas. Their only neighbors were the Gauchos, wandering cowboys descended from Spanish settlers and Indians. News of the plight of these Jews reached Baron de Hirsch, a German Jewish philanthropist. He forsaw a new way of life for Jews as farmers and ranchers on the South American frontier and provided for their settlement by giving the Jewish Colonization Association enough money to buy 1 1/4 millon acres of land in the Pampas to be distributed to them. This is the story of the Jews of those "agricultural colonies" and of their descendants in towns like Moisés Ville and Domínguez in rural Santa Fe Province in Argentina. Through archival photographs and interviews it documents their sometimes troubled, sometimes productive relations with the Gauchos and other Argentines and with their own Jewish Colonization Association.
