The inhabitants of Ibiza and Formentera (Ibicencos) to this day bitterly resent the years of Majorcan domination and greatly prize personal freedom.

Local piracy, smuggling, and the proximity and affinity to Islamic Barbary all contributed to a hatred of prying eyes and the facility to hide Jews from the Inquisition.

In transporting this salt all over Europe, the Jews of Ibiza and Formentera were able to keep their lines of communication open with Jewish communities elsewhere.

According to what i have read in various investigations, those Jews from elsewhere captured by Ibiza and Formentera pirates were usually excused from ransom, hidden from the Inquisition, and helped on numerous occasions. The Jews of Ibiza and Formentera, During the Holocaust Period There is clear evidence that the Pitiuses Islands (Ibiza and Formentera) have from the earliest times, been regarded as an ideal bolthole in times of danger elsewhere; hence the exceptional ethnological background of the Ibecencos.1 The Islands seem to have been an.

Yet the Jews of Ibiza and Formentera survived the Inquisition and remained on these two small islands until modern times. It is a further facet of the special attitude of minding one's own business pervading in the area that it is only in recent years that the facts began to come to light of how the Jews lived, traded and were protected on these islands.

The island i live on Formentera was once abandoned to pirates and i suspect most of them were of Jewish origin who originally came from Spain and were forced to flee to what is now Tunisia and North Africa to Muslim lands to escape the brutality of the Inquisition.

The tiny island of Formentera always held a Jewish population and one of the principle occupations was indeed piracy. I was on a mission to discover a bit more about the little-known Jewish community of Ibiza and Formentera, pre-dating the Spanish Inquisition — Author: Charlotte Pasha.

Holidays in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The history of the converted Jews, is one of the darkest and surprising chapters in the history of Mallorca. Surprising, because an event taking place in the fifteenth century, led to the discrimination and stigmatization of a group in the Mallorcan society, until mid-twentieth century.

Established in as The Ibiza Sun, the white island's English language newspaper became The Ibizan in We don't mind people still calling it The Ibiza Sun, many do and always will, but the reasons for a change are sound and probably : The Ibizan.

Jewish scholars often acted as money lenders, translators, artisans and craftsman and they lived in the Call district, around Calle de Montsion, in the southeast corner of the city, and worshipped at.

Book pirates have always known that plagiarism is easy, and that it pays. Armstrong's recycling of Kinsley's material is one of the highpoints of his book: six pages on Stephen Seley (), a failed alcoholic writer who made Ibiza his home from until his death in The Island Villa by Lily Graham is a bit of a contemporary story mixed with a historical read.

The book begins with Charlotte in the present time but as she is learning of her ancestry the chapters switch to what happened hundreds of years ago on the island/5. The history of the Jews in the Balearic Islands goes back more than a thousand years.

Jews have lived in the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, belonging to Spain. These are situated to the east of Valencia, the three principal of which are named Majorca (Spanish, Mallorca), Minorca (Menorca), and Eivissa. For example, Jews have long been prominent members within Ibiza and its salt trade, acting as tax collectors, shippers, and even merchants.
