What is meant by "Jewish Spain"? The term itself encompasses a series of historical contradictions. No single part of Spain has ever been entirely Jewish. Yet discourses about Jews informed debates on Spanish identity formation long after their 1492 expulsion. The Mediterranean world witnessed a renewed interest in Spanish-speaking Jews in the twentieth century, and it has grappled with shifting attitudes on what it meant to be Jewish and Spanish throughout the century. At the heart of this book are explorations of the contradictions that appear in different forms of cultural memory: literary texts, memoirs, oral histories, biographies, films, and heritage tourism packages. Tabea Alexa Linhard identifies depictions of the difficulties Jews faced in Spain and Northern Morocco in years past as integral to the survival strategies of Spanish Jews, who used them to make sense of the confusing and harrowing circumstances of the Spanish Civil War, the Francoist repression, and World War Two. Jewish Spain takes its place among other works on Muslims, Christians, and Jews by providing a comprehensive analysis of Jewish culture and presence in twentieth-century Spain, reminding us that it is impossible to understand and articulate what Spain was, is, and will be without taking into account both "Muslim Spain" and "Jewish Spain."

Trudi Alexy was born in Romania to a thoroughly assimilated Jewish family. After fleeing from Prague to Paris in 1938 to escape the Nazis, they hid in Fascist Spain as hastily baptized Catholics before immigrating to America. Although torn by guilt over surviving the Holocaust "by fraud" while living in Barcelona, eleven-year-old Alexy fell under the spell of Catholic rituals and promise of forgiveness. She planned to become a nun but left the church, disillusioned by anti-Semitism and tormented by recurring guilt and suicidal depression. The love of her life, a Greek boy she met as a teenager and hoped to marry, came looking for her after a thirty-year-long separation. His recent death, thirty years after they found each other again, opened the floodgates to her most personal memories, recorded in In Search of Forgiveness. She describes her many travel adventures, her tender affair with an Arab diplomat, her betrayal by an unscrupulous therapist, and her relationships with famous writers/mentors like Henry Miller, Anais Nin and Morris West. In her sixties, she began a search for the heritage she lost as a child, chronicled in two books, the award-winning The Mezuzah In The Madonna's Foot* and its sequel, The Marrano Legacy**. *Simon & Schuster, hard cover, 1993 Harper/San Francisco, paperback, 1994 **University of New Mexico Press, 2003

Where live our most cherished (or painful) memories? Where do our beloved (or dreaded) exist when departed? In the gray zone between our self and our world, they can exist as internal reminiscences for some and striking images for others; individually or collectively perceived and interacted; vividly or as tenuous presences. This book familiarizes us with six examples of individuals and families in therapy who live and interact with the presence of their absent, pivotal people in their lives who either died or disappeared, but are still there. It familiarizes us with their plight in a tender, compassionate style, describing in detail interviews and therapeutic transformations and, in several cases, follow-ups as well as echoes of those processes. It teaches us to respect those presences as well as how to help families and individuals treasure them...and in many cases to let them go. Written in a vivid, intense language, The Presence of the Absent offers a marvelous insight into these processes that may prove transformative for the therapist (both family and individually-oriented), as well as enlightening to the general public.
