This is taken from a website describing how Enrique Bejarano played a role in the slow reconciliation between Spain and the Sephardim:
"a distinguished Sephardic educator, Enrique Bejarano, director of the Sephardic School in Bucarest, who was on vacation, was walking on the deck with his wife and both were talking in Ladino.
This was the same boat that a Spanish medical doctor and sometimes politician, Dr. Angel Pulido Fernandez and his family, had taken from Vienna, where he was visiting his son who was attending the university in that city; deciding to take the long way home, Pulido boarded one of the many river boats that plied the route between the Austrian capital and the Black Sea, where a steamer would take him back to Spain.
Pulido introduced himself and his family to Bejarano and his wife, who told him that they were Sephardim. Thus started the beginning of a lifelong quest on the part of Pulido in his crusade of reconciliation between the Sephardim and their former homeland.
With a religious zeal, that often bordered on mysticism, Pulido took it upon himself to make the Sephardim known to his fellow countrymen, to open lines of communications and to atone for the sins of his ancestors." See for more details:
