About The Event

Starting with the expulsion of the Jews in 1290, those of the Jewish faith still remaining in England led a life of secrecy, forced conversions, and discrimination. This tour focuses on the 16th and 17th centuries, discussing their eventual re-entry, professions held, stereotypes associated with their work, and, of course, William Shakespeare’s Shylock. 

Megan Ferenczy, Director of Education at the Virginia Holocaust Museum, will continue the tour in the Williams Library with a uniquely-Richmond story to tie the past and present together. She will discuss 20th century antisemitism and how a local Richmond family responded to it in 1930s Europe.  

Reservations: Advanced payment is required.
