Room dedicated to the marginalization of the Jewish population, led to baptism often violently.

The radicalization of mentalities, political and social changes and situations of crisis can turn peaceful coexistence into a situation marked by extreme violence. From the 14th century onwards the Jewish communities were often attacked, marginalized or accused of various crimes and acts of sacrilege. At the end of the fifteenth century, the Jew’s conversion edict poured many families into exile.
