XUETA ISLAND

Some Catholics on the Spanish island of Majorca have been discriminated against for centuries because their 15 family surnames have a connection to a Jewish heritage. They not only endured stigma and humiliation, they were also deprived of fundamental rights as citizens. While a few have been inspired to return to the faith of their ancestors, their recent entry into the leadership of the local Jewish community has caused an unforeseen controversy among its members.
