Join us in the GHC library from 10:00-11:00 AM for a group discussion of a novel with a Jewish connection 



The Mezuzah in the Madonna’s Foot by Trudi Alexy These thrilling and harrowing first-hand stories of fellow-survivors and their Spanish rescuers vividly reveal the unknown history of the Jews who found asylum from Hitler's Final Solution under Franco's Fascist regime.  It was acclaimed as one of The Progressive's "BEST READING OF 1993" and won an award from the Jewish Book  Council in the category of Memoir and Biography. It is the first volume of Alexy's HIDDEN IDENTITIES TRILOGY,          followed in 2003 by THE MARRANO LEGACY, and in 2005 by IN SEARCH OF FORGIVENESS, recounting her own search for her lost Jewish heritage.
