Whenever I'm in northern New Mexico I can't help but be reminded of all of the lives that were lost between 400 - 500 years ago. Not only were the native Americans slaughtered by the Spanish, yet also Jews who were in hopes of escaping the Spanish Inquisition. Unfortunately, the conquistador followed them into Mexico and throughout the Southwest of the United States, leaving Jews no other option but to go into hiding and or convert. There are so many New Mexicans who have no clue that their ancestors were Jewish.
