My Family Story is an experiential and fun Jewish heritage program that involves Jewish youth from 30 countries around the globe. Students research their roots, conduct family interviews and use their creative skills to design original, artistic installations that capture the essence of their family history. Top entries are selected for display in an international exhibition in Memory of Manuel Hirsch Grosskopf, displayed at The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot.

The first Jew who arrived in the area was the Marrano Rodrigo de Ordonez, who came with the Spanish explorer Diego de Almagro, who was the first westerner to arrive in Chile, in 1535. A significant Jewish community was not established in Santiago, however, until the 19th century. (Beit Hatfutsot Databases)
