Son of Jewish refugee wins Peruvian presidential elect

Source: Jerusalem Post

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, a Peruvian banker and former prime minister whose father was Jewish, was elected as Peru’s president.

Kuczynski won a bare majority of votes — 50.12 percent — over Keiko Fujimori, Peru’s national election office announced on its official Twitter page Thursday evening.

Kuczynski, 77, was born in Lima to a French Protestant mother and a German Jewish father who fled the Nazis. He is nicknamed “El Gringo” – the American – for his ties to the United States, where he has lived from 1969 onward.

“Thank you Peru, it is time to work together for the future of our new country,” Kuczynski announced on Twitter.

2. This quote in the article:

Former President Alan García once slammed him for not having “a single gram of Peruvian blood. He has Polish, Jewish, French, but Peruvian zero”.

Sounds like Trump slamming Judge Coriel.

I told my 86 year old mom the name of the new President, and she smiled. Her dad was born in Poland in 1887.
