Jewish immigration in Mexico began in the late nineteenth century. Jewish people from different regions migrated to Mexico and created different sectors of Judaism. The Jews founded many schools in Mexico, making education one of their greatest contributions to Mexico. Some of these schools were for the children of the Jewish community. However, in 1948 Max Shein founded a public school for Mexican children in general: the Secundaria 15 Albert Einstein. To this day the school continues to function in Mexico City. Renowned alumni include actors Hector Bonilla, Marta Aura, Julieta Egurrola, writer Alejandro Aura, and journalist Cristina Pacheco.
José Francisco Ponce Bolaños took the photographs included in the collection when he and his wife Teresa Romero Rangel (alumni of the Secundaria 15) attended the seventy-years celebration of the foundation of the school, which took place on May 26, 2018.
