Vera's Journey: Across Generations and Beyond Borders

Length: 155 pages2 hours


Vera’s journey begins with the story of her ancestors, who left Spain and Portugal hundreds of years ago to escape the Inquisition. They migrated to Mexico in the late sixteenth century, and eventually went northwards into New Mexico and Colorado. The first part of the book focuses on the Jewish roots of Vera’s family, their eventual acculturation to Christianity, and their transition from being part of Mexico to becoming part of the USA . The second part of the book focuses on Vera’s life, beginning in the Valle de San Luis in southern Colorado, to Denver, and finally to Boulder. It is a life dedicated to her family and to social justice and equality for all people, but especially for the Chicano students at the University of Colorado and in the Boulder Valley schools.
