About the Author
Erika Spivakovsky (1909–1998) became interested in Mendoza while researching a book on the expulsion in 1492 of the Jews from Spain. Under the auspices of the Radcliffe Institute she traveled extensively in Spain and Italy, visiting places connected with Mendoza's life and gathering material from local archives.
