After the Inquisition many Jews who stayed on the Iberian peninsula eventually made their way to Amsterdam where they found a new home in which they could practice their religion without persecution. They built a large and influential community which can be studied in detail thanks to the extensive cache of documentation they archived as well as the documentation archived by their new homeland of the Netherlands. In this program we will look at the Sephardic community of Amsterdam by studying the expansive array of documentation and how the Dutch are making it easier to access than ever before.
