Esther is a novel that recreates the immigration of European Jews to Bolivia in the late 1930s and early 1940s, marked by Nazi persecution. The reader will encounter the harsh ups and downs faced by the protagonists in their countries of origin and when they arrive in an absolutely unknown land, with customs very different from those they knew and with which they were educated in Europe. It is a story of suffering and hope, of tragedies and triumphs. Set in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Vienna, Paris, Genoa, Toulon, Arica, La Paz, Cochabamba and the Yungas of La Paz, we follow in the footsteps of the men and women who live and make the work alive.
