Topic: Family Secrets – Stories of Crypto Jews
In school, very little attention was paid to the Inquisition or the resulting phenomenon of Secret/Crypto Jews. The compelling stories of these “hidden Jews” and their descendants still are playing out today. We’ll talk about the human element of that moment in history and about the personal journeys of today’s descendants of the forced converts.
