The Impact of the Crusades on Jews
Jews move out
Jew suffered great persecutions, many were murdered, Crusaders destroyed synagogues and holy books, They tortured some Jews to make them accept Christianity. Envy of Jews who had become prosperous bankers spread among non-crusaders as well, there were fights in many cities. Segregation spread throughout Europe and Jews were forced to live in crowded areas called ghettos, walls and gates separated them from the rest of the town or city.
