Jewish German Immigrant Booksellers in Twentieth-Century Ecuador
Keywords:Ecuador – German Jews, Jewish bookdealers, German Jewish Bookdealers – Ecuador
When German Jews looked for a country to receive them in the late 1930s Ecuador had its doors open for immigration. This paper traces the story of four German Jewish refugees who landed in Ecuador and established bookstores and libraries in a country that knew little of either. Rescuing their lives from oblivion is a way to highlight their cultural contribution to their host country.
