      Calimani's century by century walk through the politics, economics, and religious ferment of the ghetto of Venice, together with fascinating letters and writings from individuals, paints a complete picture of a unique socio-political and religious space in European history - the Jewish ghetto of Venice. You can visit this foreign land and travel up and down the alleys of time in The Ghetto of Venice.The story of the Jews of Venice begins around 1150, and continues until this day, although the la [...]

      Dzieło Calmaniego trudno jednoznacznie ocenić. Historię getta w weneckiego przedstawia w bardzo przystępny sposób, ale także nieco chaotyczny. Książka posiada zwartą, chronologiczną strukturę, gdzieniegdzie wplątane są anegdotki o postaciach, które żyły w tamtym okresie. Zachwycać może bogactwo informacji o getcie, wysoki styl i piękny język skądinąd.

      This is a very comprehensive look at the history of the Venetian ghetto, from its creation in 1516 to its demise. The majority of the book was very well written.

But their children could not go to the same schools or use other services doctors etc. the author uses documents and artifacts to back up his claims. He goes on to show that this change in 1797 wh [...]

      The book reads like a historical academic thesis. History of the Venetian Jews between the 17th and 19th centuries with a short more current update.Yes, it's historical, and informative and revealing of a way of life gone, but the level of discrimination is torturous beyond description and these towards a people who brought substantial capitol to the Venetian treasury. Yes, Napoleon broke the gates of the Ghetto, and Hitler exterminated almost the whole community to the extent of emptying the ho [...]
