The Memory Work of Jewish Spain (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Recent surveys in Spain reveal that most Spaniards know little about the country's Jewish past, know no Jews, and in fact, have negative opinions about Jews in general. In The Memory Work of Jewish Spain, Daniela Flesler and Adrian Perez Melgosa explore new trends and activities aimed at reclaiming and reconnecting with Spain's Jewish heritage. They examine how local and national organizations have funded educational activities, conferences, museum exhibitions, archaeological digs, and film festivals, as well as research into the Ladino language, in an attempt to spark interest in Spain's Jewish past and to promote Jewish tourism.

The Memory Work of Jewish Spain charts the landscape of reconstruction of Jewish space in Spain, how this space functions as part of its collective memory, and what these personal and national connections mean for the Jewish past and Spain's future.
