Tiago does a great job w his seminars. He brings so much detail in history and culture but in a way that is not overwhelming.
Mr. Tiago Nieve was so animated and genuinely excited to share the rarely acknowledged long and important history of Jewish culture and industry in Lisbon and beyond, I was drawn by his manner of expression and knowledge. As an American traveler, I’ve been to Portugal three times, but this part of history was never referred to. I knew it was there, bht didn’t know where to look…I do now. I’m grateful for newly learned facts, perspective, and knowledge.
I have spent time on my own informally researching the history of the Jews in Portugal. I still learned a tremendous amount of information from this lecture and look forward to the 2nd installment.
Again, another wonderful experience from Professor Neiva!!!! Just brilliant!!!!
A concise and interesting presentation of the subject, with outstanding visual material. Tiago Neiva's talk is smooth and enthusiastic (no hesitations, ums or ahs) -- you feel like he is talking with you rather than dry lecturing. He piqued my interest to learn more on the subject, especially interesting to me as my paternal ancestry is of Sephardic origins, via Portugal. Neiva is an engaging speaker with good knowledge of his subject, entertaining and informative.
