The Girl from Lisbon


The Girl from Lisbon by Guiora Barak


This book focuses on the story of Doña Gracia Nasi (c. 1510–1569), who grew up in Portugal in a Jewish family forcibly baptized and went on to escape and become a savior to thousands of Jews also seeking to escape the Inquisition. She is viewed as truly the Queen Esther of her time. Israel-based Guiora Barak spent many year in the diplomatic corps and has a longstanding interest in the history of the Spanish & Portuguese Jews.
