A Story Told in Ladino

Centropa Student, a website designed to promote understanding of Jewish life in Central Europe, has produced a film in Ladino in which a Turkish Jew narrates her family's immigration from Spain to the Ottoman Empire. Ladino, a mix of Spanish and Hebrew, could once be heard widely in Jewish quarters of Istanbul. Thanks to Jenny White at Kamil Pasha for originally posting this.
