With the aim of contributing to the advancement of Jewish immigration
as a rich field of study within Argentine historiography, the present
article analyzes the personal narratives of three women—a physician, a
psychoanalyst, and an artist—who, after having crossed the Atlantic in
two contrasting migratory contexts, developed outstanding professional
trajectories. Namely, the study examines how these women, who came from
Central, Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe, bestowed different meanings
upon their European past and Jewish tradition; notions that acquired new
meanings in line with their experience of migration and exile.
