EXPULSION is a lovely little book, by the writer-artist Judith Weinshall Liberman, describing these traumatic events as experienced by one Spanish-Jewish family. The debate within the family whether to undergo conversion (genuine or false), which eventually rends the family apart, is touchingly narrated. The book is suitable for both children and grownups, and provides ample scope for discussion, as well as a very interesting lesson of history.
The book is accompanied by attractive, thoughtful illustrations contributed by Gail Davis who collaborated with Ms. Liberman on many of her other books.
