Jews of the Spanish Homeland

This newly-restored documentary visits Sephardic communities in Salonika, Constantinople, Yugoslavia, and Romania as well as former centers of Jewish life in Spain. Shot in the 1920s, the film captures communities later destroyed in the Holocaust. Addressing the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492, filmmaker Caballero uses drawings to depict Jewish dispersion to Europe, North Africa, and the Americas.
