In harsh and humid northern Argentina, Chaco Province towns include Preidencia Roque Saenz Pena/Charata, Pinedo, and Villa Angela. Settlement was unrelated to the Jewish Colonization Association. Around 1920, immigrants first settled around Charata, some disillusioned with Moises Ville and primarily Colonia Dora. They came to grow cotton. [December 2003]
