Exodus 1939: Hungary to Cuba, Part 2

By Kate Helsy

Eugene Borowitz, April 14, 1978

Continuing her story where her previous article ("Exodus 1939, from Hungary to Cuba", which appears earlier in the same issue of Sh'ma) left off, the author describes her process of accommodating herself to life in Cuba. She felt herself to be a part of her surroundings, the author recounts, but she also felt very aware of her Jewishness. She and other Jewish immigrants to Cuba frequently congregated and discussed Zionism, she writes.
