Sosúa’s history began before the arrival of its first settlers, when it was only a banana plantation with a shipping port that was later closed in the late 1930s.
During the height of the Nazi regime, a major Jewish association in the United States called DORSA drew up a plan to take in Jews in various countries, with the DR being the only one to open its doors; the island was still under the rule of a dictator named Trujillo.
It is believed that the first arrivals were in 1940, although some historians place it at the end of 1939.
