European Expulsion of Jews

The European expulsion of Jews began in 13th Century England. King Edward I of England announced the expulsion of all Jews and confiscation of their homes and property on July 18, 1290 following pressure from his Barons and the Church. The 4,000 British Jews began leaving in November with little more than the cloths on their backs and did not return to England until 1659.
