"The Hidden Jews of New Mexico"
Producer: Benjamin Shapiro
Project Director: Nan Rubin
These three radio documentaries, produced by award-winning producer Benjamin Shapiro, share the moving personal experiences of present-day descendants of the original settlers of New Mexico as they discover their true past, find a renewed sense of history, search for their ancestors, and develop a special pride in their unique religious and cultural identity as Crypto-Jews.
First aired on public radio between 1988 and 1995, they immediately captured the listening audience and became some of the most requested programs of all time on NPR.
Each program is 30-minutes long.
