About Dr. Benjamin Gampel
Dr. Benjamin Gampel specializes in the history of the Jews of the medieval and early modern world. For his first book, The Last Jews on Iberian Soil, Dr. Gampel spent almost a year in Spain researching local archives. After much work, Dr. Gampel was able to re-create some of the long-forgotten history of the Jews of the Iberian Peninsula. Subsequently, Dr. Gampel edited the volume Crisis and Creativity in the Sephardic World.
