A Spanish official has given what is being heralded as the country’s first formal apology for the Inquisition’s killing of Jews. On the island of Mallorca, where 37 Jews were killed in 1691 for secretly practicing Judaism, the regional president offered the apology at a May 5 memorial service in the city of Palma.
