'Jewish Contributions to 20th Century Spain'

Information

Join Dominique Tomasov Blinder Jews started arriving in Spain in the early 1900's after centuries of absence, having been kicked out in 1492 by the Catholic kings Isabel and Ferdinand. Involved in all fields of science, industry and culture, they have contributed their talents and know-hows to the development of this country, once again.

Who was David Oliver and where did he come from? How did Marcos Menkes become a worldwide known manufacturer of Flamenco dance shoes? Who started the wedding wear "prêt a porter"? Who introduced yogurt for breakfast? In this virtual trip across the ocean you will be introduced to some of these persons whose vision had a long reach beyond the Pyrenées and the coasts of the Mediterranean.
