200 Jews Enter Uruguay Monthly, Reports Society

About 200 Jewish immigrants are now arriving every month in Uruguay from Eastern Europe, according to a report which has just been published here by the local Jewish Immigrants’ Protective Society’ which is being financially supported by the American “Hias”.

The report, which gives the figures of Jewish immigration into Uruguay from 1927 to 1930, points out that Jews were the first to make Uruguay a country of immigration. The first Jewish immigrants came here in 1917 and were refugees from pogroms.
