Some 1,000 Jewish documents from medieval Spain have been discovered hidden inside other books. The Hebrew manuscripts were found inside other books that were being restored in Girona, one of the centers of Spanish Jewish life before the Inquisition. The documents apparently were abandoned by Jews fleeing in the 15th century.
