THE SPANISH CONNECTION
A historical journey through Spain. Yitzhak Navon, fifth President of the State of Israel and scion of Spanish Jewish exiles, strays from the beaten path and reveals some amazing discoveries in places not found on tourist maps.
THE GOLDEN AGE
How the Jews of Spain emerged from their anonymity and developed the world's foremost Jewish spiritual center of The Middle Ages.
THE BALANCE OF TERROR
The rise and fall of the Jews in Christian Spain.
THE MARRANOS AND THE INQUISITION
The Inquisition's reign of terror: denunciation, torture and autos da fe.
Navon glimpses behind the scenes of the year 1492, tracing the footsteps of Don Avraham Seneor, the Royal Rabbi, most famous of all Jewish apostates of 1492. He uncovers the role of the Marranos in the discovery of America and tackles the question that concerns so many Spaniards. Was Columbus a Jew? THE CRYPTO-JEWS OF PORTUGAL (A) The Marranos of Portugal resisted the Inquisition with far more vigor and persistence than their Spanish counterparts. In fact, since the sixteenth century, nearly all outstanding personalities among the Marranos were of Portuguese origin.
THE CRYPTO-JEWS OF PORTUGAL
(B) Two hundred and fifty years after the conversion of the Jews of Portugal, the Inquisition continues to imprison, torture and burn their descendents at the stake.
THE ETERNAL JEW OF MAJORCA
The Chuetas, the Marranos of Majorca, are not crypto-Jews; their forefathers abandoned Judaism three hundred years ago. Although they consider themselves to be solid, loyal Christians, they are still called Jews -- and hated as Jews -- by their neighbors.
