History of the Conversos in Spain

This video is part of a Sephardic history series produced by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Dr. Benjamin Gampel provides a good review of the events that led to the rise of the Converso phenomena at the end of the 14th century. In the future, I will be adding links to the entire Sephardic history series.
