This month, we will discuss “The Last Jew” by Noah Gordon.

In the year 1492, the Inquisition has all of Spain in its grip. After centuries of pogrom-like riots encouraged by the Church, the Jews – who have been an important part of Spanish life since the days of the Romans – are expelled from the country by royal edict. Many who wish to remain are intimidated by Church and Crown and become Catholics, but several hundred thousand choose to retain their religion and depart; given little time to flee, some perish even before they can escape from Spain.   Click here for the Zoom link.
