“Children of the Inquisition” (Promotional still)

Join us for a special showing of the film “Children of the Inquisition” followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Joseph Lovett, and director of Hebrew College’s Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership, Rabbi Or Rose.

“Children of the Inquisition” is a re-examination of history and identity in a two-hour documentary film that unearths 500 years of hidden history. The film looks at what happened to the families forced to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese inquisitions through the eyes of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their often nuanced Jewish roots. The film’s storytellers uncover the connections between their family’s journeys and this buried history. The discoveries of these flights to safety over the past 500 years give a new perspective to the world events we face today.

Learn more about the film and the “Children of the Inquisition” educational project.
