Abstract Jewish culture has been present in Spain for centuries, but it is not always visible. In the ancient city of Segovia, layers of urban development have largely concealed a rich Sephardic heritage. This program explores that legacy and documents recovery and restoration efforts in Segovia's Jewish quarter. Combining interviews with scholars, historians, and residents with footage of medieval architectural features, the film vividly illustrates the long-term influence of the city's age-old Jewish community. Special attention is given to the cultural impact of the Edict of Expulsion in 1492-an event that interrupted but did not erase the Sephardic tradition in Spain.
