SMF online Capitão Barros Basto, o Apostolo dos Marranos, 2 Maio 2021




Captain Barros Basto, the Portuguese Dreyfus

A free program brought to you by the Sousa Mendes Foundation - US  

2 May 2021, 11 AM LOS ANGELES • 2 PM NEW YORK, 7 PM LISBON • 9 PM JERUSALEM

 Artur Carlos de Barros Basto was a captain in the Portuguese military who was discharged as a Jew despite having been raised as a Catholic. Descended from a family forcibly converted during The Inquisition, he rediscovered his Judaism and underwent a formal conversion. Then he built the largest synagogue in the Iberian peninsula in order to attract other “conversos” to reclaim the religion of their ancestors. A remarkable story!
