Ethnicity played a role in the process of discrimination as well as of self-identification. The conversos who left Iberia continued to consider themselves members of the Nation and had strong ties to their homeland as well as to other members of their group. The resulting new identity depended upon the individual as well as upon the choice of destination. Some strong Jewish communities were formed, some individuals never found their way, and some groups were isolated for centuries until developments in the modern period altered their lifestyles. One never would have expected to be encountering heated debates regarding the nature of the converso identity in the twenty-first century.
