International Jewish Cemetery Project - Argentina
The port located on both the ocean and Pampean flatland has a current population of 330,000+. Jewish inhabitants probably date from Sephardim from Tetuan and Marakech in Morocco, arriving around 1900. Ashkenazi Jews arrived around the 1920s from Midanos (48 km away) and from Villa Alba, Bernasconi, and Rivera. [December 2003]
