History and drama are
closely allied in the express-
ive novel The Marranos,"
by Liliane Webb (Andrews
and McMeel) which por-
trays one of the most tragic
events in Jewish history,
the Spanish Inquisition.
It was during this period,
that an underground resis-
tance group of Jews evolved
in Spain, comprised of de-_
scendants of Jews forcibly
converted to Christianity.
These Jews were contemp-
tuously called `Marranos'
(swine) by their fellow coun-
trymen. Fear was a way of
life for the Marranos, yet
they conspired to put an end
to the Inquisition and bring
religious liberty back to

that the meeting of the
planning committee at the
home of the Schlussels will
also hear reports on the pro-
gress being made to enroll
an increased number of
people in support of schol-
arships at Bar-Ilan, as
means of providing educa-
tional needs vital to Israeli
students.

Depicts Shtetl
Life in Europe

"The Last Jews of
Raduti," a 25-page photo-
graphic study by Laurence
Salzmann and Dan Rotten-
berg, appears in the current
(July) issue of GEO Maga-
zine.
The essay depicts both the
beauty and the squalor of
present-day Jewish life in
the Romanian shtetl of
Raduti, a village in the Car-
pathian Mountains near the
Soviet border.
Salzmann, a 34-year-old
anthropologist and photo-
grapher from Philadelphia,
spent two years living in the
community in order to re-
cord his insights. He visited
homes, markets, commu-
nity events and carefully
documented activities at
the three synagogues that
provide the anchor for
Jewish life in Raduti.
Rottenberg, who wrote
the text for the story, is the
author of "Finding Our
Fathers: A Guidebook to
Jewish Genealogy.

It is a sober truth that
people who live only to
amuse themselves, work
harder at the task than
most people do in earning
their daily bread.
