Could A Jew Get a Fair Trial in Seventeenth Century Poland?

Posted November 16, 2016

In this lecture, we will explore the interactions of the Jews in a southern Polish town in the first half of the 1600s. We will examine several court cases, some in which the Jews are mistreated and others in which the Jews are given equal treatment to the non-Jews. What is the difference in the cases? What does it tell us about the condition of the Jews in early modern Poland?
