The Spanish Right and the Jews 1898-1945: Antisemitism and Opportunism

Overview

“This fascinating and compelling work moves some considerable way beyond the existing literature on the Franco regime’s treatment of Jewish refugees during the Second World War. In an entirely original way, it combines a lucid analysis of the historical origins of Spanish anti-Semitism with a revealing dissection of the ideological and strategic (indeed cynical) motives underlying the contradictory policies adopted by the Franco regime after 1943. This unique work is an extremely important contribution to the history of contemporary Spain, to the ...

Overview

“This fascinating and compelling work moves some considerable way beyond the existing literature on the Franco regime’s treatment of Jewish refugees during the Second World War. In an entirely original way, it combines a lucid analysis of the historical origins of Spanish anti-Semitism with a revealing dissection of the ideological and strategic (indeed cynical) motives underlying the contradictory policies adopted by the Franco regime after 1943. This unique work is an extremely important contribution to the history of contemporary Spain, to the post-Inquisition history of the relationship between Spain and the Jews and to an important dimension both of the Holocaust and of the Second World War.” From the Series Editor’s Preface, Paul Preston, London School of Economics

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Rohr’s work deals especially with politics and ideology, and is most original particularly in its analysis of the influence exerted by the new Spanish imperialism in northern Morocco. That the Spanish right was generally anti­ Jewish is not, of course, a new finding, and such an orientation was partially contested by the new, early twentieth­ century trend of ‘philosephardism’ on the part of some Spanish nationalists, who held that Sephardic Jews were superior to other Jews in having been ‘purified’ by Spanish culture. Rohr does an able job in sorting out these only partially contradictory trends, and contributes more than a little primary research in Spanish archives to present a more complete account. … The most important part of the book deals with the role of Spanish Morocco, which contains the highest proportion of new data. As Rohr emphasizes, there has been a considerable amount of recent literature in Spain on Spanish policy and actions in the Protectorate, focused almost exclusively on relations with and attitudes towards the Moroccan population, while generally ignoring the place of the once significant Jewish population in northern Morocco.”  —Stanley G. Payne, European History Quarterly
