Clifford’s Tower, York

Here is a picture of Clifford’s Tower, sometimes called York Castle - as it stands on the original site.

This was taken last weekend while enjoying a sunny day out seeing the sights in York.

It was in this tower that some 150 Jews were killed. Seeing the commemorative plaque reminded me of England's poor record in its treatment of the Jews. It was only recently that I had learned that the Jews had been expelled from England for 350 years!

England it seems isn't the only country to mistreat the Jews, it seems that nearly everyone has had a go. Did you know that the word 'ghetto' comes from the slums that Jews were forced into in Venice?

You don't have to be a Jew to recognise that their treatment throughout history has been shocking. I just don't get it.
