Venice Ghetto

Interesting
This ghetto was the first Jewish neighbourhood of the Western world. Settled in Venice since the 10C, the Jewish population restricted to Cannaregio had to raise the height of their buildings to accommodate their growing numbers. Today the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo is peaceful, but the Museo Ebraico and the occasional synagogue bear witness to the tragedy of the Jewish people.
