Brits in Bolivia – bits and pieces

Former British diplomat, Alan Shave – living in La Paz since his retirement in 1996 – was challenged, over a glass of cognac, to write a history of the British in Bolivia. His investigations have now produced some 40 chapters in draft – and he’s still researching everything British in his adoptive country from bilateral relations to spies, mining and railway development and more.

Walter Kohn: an honourable man

We were so pleased to present this talk by Elizabeth Sissi Gill. In 2014 Sissi resolved to investigate her maternal grandfather’s shadowy past, a mission that took her to Vienna, the US – and to La Paz, where newspapers from the 1930s revealed an extraordinary story of an unjust accusation of murder, a 10-year prison sentence and a hero’s death fighting for Bolivia in the Chaco War.
