How could a medieval Jewish cemetery in Vitoria, Spain be the cause of so much debate? At Vitoria transports the reader to the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the fifteenth century and weaves a story of success, downfall, love, terror, tragedy, shame, and honor. The historical and cultural details surrounding the story make for an evocative narrative that draws the reader in and provides an engaging sense of realism.
Marcia Riman Selz spent her business career as a marketing consultant to financial institutions. But after a vacation in Spain, the calling to write about Vitoria and its medieval Jewish community was overwhelming. So after several years of research, she wrote At Vitoria.
Dr. Selz earned her Ph.D. from the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University, her MBA from Loyola-Marymount University and her Bachelors Degree from Indiana University.
