Instructor: Anna Guerra

Presenter Anna Guerra, drawing upon her own ancestry which also exists in the backgrounds of many contemporary Tejanos, will trace how Sephardic people settled in Texas following the expulsion of Jews from Spain in the fifteenth century. This lecture explores the Carvajal family, whose history includes conquistadores, Crypto- Jews, Jewish martyrs, “converso” priests, and a tragic but poignant end during the Mexican Inquisition. These fascinating historical events remind us of a narrative of intolerance and survival replayed throughout human history.
