We invite you to delve deeper into the Curaçao Jewish experience and have created a list of primary resources we suggest for further reading.
This list is by no means exhaustive; we are regularly preparing additional materials for you to explore, such as these unfinished and unpublished manuscripts from the late community historian Charles Gomes Casseres
Beknopte geschiedenis van de Joden van Curaçao, circa 2000
Brief history of the Sephardim of Curaçao, circa 2000
We have also gathered some additional materials for you to read online about assorted Jewish Curacao topics. This list is by no means exhaustive, from time to time we will add additional links for you to explore.
You may also want to check out JSTOR’s extensive database for journals, primary sources, and books. Reading and downloading requires registration and the free account gives you access to a limited number of articles monthly.
