This database contains a list of 254 Jews who arrived in Paraguay between 1918 and 1935.


This data set is comprised of a list of Jews who arrived in Paraguay between 1918 and 1935.  The list came from Alfredo M. Seiferheld’s, Los Judios en el Paraguay, published in Asuncion in1984.

The book itself includes some discussion of the history of the community but very little about individuals.


This database includes 254 Jews who arrived in Paraguay.  The fields for this database are as follows:

  • Name (Surname + Given name)
  • Nationality
  • Age
  • Date of arrival
  • Name of ship
  • Emigrated from
  • Destination in Paraguay


The information contained in this database was indexed from the files of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).  Freija Lindholm, a JewishGen volunteer, transcribed the list.

In addition, thanks to JewishGen Inc. for providing the website and database expertise to make this database accessible.  Special thanks to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for their continued contributions to Jewish genealogy.  Particular thanks to Nolan Altman, coordinator of Holocaust files.
