Moisés Ville was the epicenter of Argentine Jewish life during the 20th century. It was the first of many agricultural colonies founded by Jews who fled the Russian Empire’s persecution especially. When Javier Sinay discovered an article recounting twenty-two murders in Moisés Ville, written by his great-grandfather, a book was born. The discovery sent Sinay on a journey to discover the town’s turbulent past and his family’s history within it. Join the Museum for a discussion with Sinay about his book, The Murders of Moisés Ville: The Rise and Fall of the Jerusalem of South America, where he will talk with cultural anthropologist Dr. Natasha Zaretsky.
