Sarajevo Rose: A Balkan Jewish Notebook
Stephen Schwartz (au)
Tracing the path of the Sephardic Jews to the Balkans -- following their expulsion from Spain during the Inquisition -- Schwartz draws on place names, historical chronicles, epitaphs, folk ballads, banned books, and the media. He examines both the travails and remarkable cultural achievements of these communities which, hundreds of years after the trauma of forced exile, were almost entirely destroyed in the Holocaust. The richness of the literature, poetry, mythology and craftsmanship that emerged from the Balkan Jewish milieu is explored, as well as the intermingling of Jewish, Muslim, Catholic and Orthodox communities in the region. Highlights include commentaries on Sabbetai Zvi and Abraham Kohen Herrera. Photos.
