Currently I say:
This history book written for young people is packed with crucial information on the history of Jewish people from 1492 to the creation of synagogueseses in New York (and a mention of Rhode Island congregation).
Since my family came from Spain in the 1700 and 1800see and were likely Jewish, my heartaches at the difficulties my family members experienced in exerting their right to Religous Protection and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It's juvenile non-fiction, but it addresses an historical event that not many adult books cover. I liked it- it was well-written (for children) and easy enough to read. The text got a bit windy, and near the end it seemed like a bit of a stretch. But it's something kids should read about in addition to all of the propaganda about Columbus.

I loved it and I could totally relate to the book because it tells the story of my family in Western Europe, but also how one part of my husband's family came to the new world!

Provides an interesting and accessible account of the Spanish Inquisition. Good for middle and high school students.

I think every Jew should be familiar with the History of the Inquisition. Not too long ago that Jews weren't burnt regularly in the public square. Makes a person think twice about visiting Spain or admiring the Pope.

A great insight into what happened to at least some of the Sephardic Jews upon being expelled from Spain in that anno mirabili. My only objection is the "New World" in the title. That world was one of ancient and complex civilizations rivalling those of the "old world."
