Description

Acclaimed in the "Progressive's", "Best Reading of 1993", these thrilling and harrowing firsthand stories of survivors and their rescuers vividly reveal the secret history of the Jews who found asylum from Hitler's Final Solution under Franco's Fascist regime. "These awe-inspiring accounts pack enough adventure, suspense, turmoil and intrigue for a Hollywood film...A meaningful contribution to the literature of the Holocaust". -- "San Francisco Chronicle" "A woman discovering her Jewish roots...[and] the Jewish past of Spain viscerally brings home the complex layers of history. Alexy cracks open historical events to reveal Spanish efforts on behalf of Jewish refugees...while at the same time discovering the still fearful heart of the Marranos, remnants of another persecution". --Lily Rivlin, director of "Conversos, The Secret Jews" "Contributes to our common history with a very important and not very well-known chapter". --His Royal highness, King Juan Carlos I
