About the event

Based on Harry Freedman’s new book Shylock’s Venice, this is the story of the Venice Ghetto, the corner of the city where Jews were exiled; free to walk the streets by day, locked behind gates and walls at night. Yet, gates and walls notwithstanding, from its establishment in 1516 until the fall of Venice in 1798, the ghetto prison was the site of a remarkable cultural renaissance. It became Europe’s most vibrant Jewish centre. For the first time in European history Jews and Christians mingled intellectually, learning from each other, sharing ideas and entering modernity together. When it came to culture, the ghetto walls were porous.

Thos who wish to buy the book will enjoy a discount. They should go to and enter the code JHS20.
