The history of the Khoens del de Campavias describes the lives of a Sephardic Jewish family of the Ottoman Empire. It focuses on the life of Eliya Kohen, an intellectual in the Istanbul Jewish community of the early twentieth century. Besides being a lawyer, Eliya Kohen was also engaged in journalism and a notable public conflict with the Chief Rabbi of the Ottoman Empire, Haim Nahum, during the emergence of Zionism. The book continues by detailing the lives of Turkey’s Jewish community after the First World War and then the hardships Jews and other non-Muslims endured during the Second World War. The Khoens del de Campavias also covers the history of the Gabay branch from Baghdad, which produced a leading banker and powerful court figure in the nineteenth century.
