This book chronicles the astounding, intensely personal correspondence between two strangers from different countries who shared the unusual experience of discovering in their teens that they were Jews: 'Simon', a descendant of Spain's medieval Marranos who submitted to baptism to escape the Inquisition, and Trudi Alexy who survived the Holocaust when her family fled from Prague to Paris and hid in Fascist Spain as hastily baptised Catholics. Fifty years later, when she set out to recapture her lost Jewish identity, she discovered a spiritual kinship with the medieval Marranos who, though they were forced to hide their Jewishness, held to their ancient traditions in secret.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The drama of "The Marrano Legacy offers a human face and a mournful soul to what is truly among the darker and sadder corners of Jewish and Catholic histories. The book is deeply disturbing and more than memorable."
"A fascinating meld of some old religious histories and modern-day mysteries."
"The drama of "The Marrano Legacy" offers a human face and a mournful soul to what is truly among the darker and sadder corners of Jewish and Catholic histories. The book is deeply disturbing and more than memorable."
"Some people are perplexed why hidden Jews are so secretive about their identities. This book helps us to understand their reasons and makes us aware of the emotional and psychological burdens carried by those who live or have lived secret lives."
