Lycos - The Venice Ghetto
The Venice Jewish Ghetto was a zone Jewish people had to live in and from which they could not go out from sunset to sunrise. The area was closed by gates controlled by guards, and the signs left by the hinges can still be seen today. The Jewish were only allowed to practice some jobs: they were doctors, merchants, rag-sellers and money-lenders, a profession prohibited by Christian religion. Here you can see some Ghetto photographs.
