Sparks Emotion 5 Every Jew should read this book. Ephraim was of course right and Yehudi was wrong and paid the heavy price for it! The even more severe and bitter price was paid by the entire Spanish Jewish Diaspora three hundred years later the action of the novel takes place at about year time frame - I refer to the deportation of Jews from Spain in the year of Most of the Jews preferred to be expelled from the country rather than to convert. The last day for Jews to stay in Spain was indicated as July 31st On that day, , Jews left Spain.
Out of total of , Jewish men and women, , decided to move to the neighboring country - Portugal and to their continuing misfortune they got expelled from there too just after 4 years of living in Portugal - so they were forced to choose again between conversion or expulsion. Both of them we very helpful and made significant positive contribution to the benefit and well being of their respective countries to which they served Spain and USA and both of them were neglecting their Jewish identity and were not making any significant efforts to advance the issues dear to the destiny and well being of the Israel the people and state.
View all 3 comments. Das Buch ist spannend, ohne wirklich viel Handlung zu haben, es lebt von der Sprache und Struktur. Es handelt von der Schwierigkeit und den "Kampf" Frieden zu halten und der Leichtigkeit, Krieg zu entfachen und so das in kurzer Zeit zu vernichten, was Jahrhunderte aufgebaut wurde. Das alles wird nicht plakativ aufgepropft von Feuchtwanger, sondern ist teil der Handlung und der Figuren, glaubhaft eingewebt in Geschichte und Historie und in die Gegenwart dreier Religionen. Leer la novela de Feuchtwanger fue un viaje.
El trabajo investigativo de Feuchtwanger es de tal nivel que puedo catalogarlo como escritor e historiador. May 29, Alexander Ledovskiy rated it it was amazing. Oct 14, Stas rated it it was amazing. The best love story that I have read. Brilliantly written, touching to the bones and incredibly moving. Do not pass this book. I have read it many times and will be reading more times in the future. Also, I suggest to read it in Russian translation. Shelves: myths-and-tales , romance , biography-autobiography.

It is a historic book because it describes the situation during Spanish Reconquista and coexistence of three different cultures. It is a love story with forbidden and tragic love and it is even a psychological novel, because of great description of characters and personal development of t Wow, this was really amazing.
It is a love story with forbidden and tragic love and it is even a psychological novel, because of great description of characters and personal development of them. It is a book full of beautiful thoughts and with quite original story. I am not sure, if I can compare this to something, but it is everything I was expecting from Dostoevsky and his Crime and punishment and what I did not get from that book. I can recommend it to everybody.

This is a very nice historical love story although maybe less good than his other books. Despite gruesome circumstances, maybe a bit too romantic.
But a good read, and you find out about Spain in 15th century and the Jewish dilemma,.
