Margalit Bejarano, the leading scholar of Cuba's interwar Jewish community, has produced a fruitful collection of short testimonies from more than five dozen men and women who lived in Cuba before 1959. A few contribute more than once; other statements are the result of two persons being interviewed at the same time. The bulk of the oral history research was carried out in South Florida, the result of the trick of history that drove the overwhelming majority of Cuban Jews from that island to the land that had barred their parents -although Dr. Bejarano also knows Cuba well, especially the period before World War II.
