The Dominican Republic is recognized as the exception to all countries that gave their backs to Jewish refugee immigrants in the heydays of the Nazi regime. Ronald Lauder, president of the Jewish World Congress, recently had praise for the DR. He spoke of the Dominican Republic as the exception to the rule at a time when the US and European countries looked the other way to the plight of Jewish refugees. He spoke on 2 May 2021, addressing the audience congregated for the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp.
Lauder was referring to the Jewish settlement in Sosua, Puerto Plata.
