Catholic Laws: Jewish Ghetto’s and Siezing of Jewish Property

This is a time line of Catholic Law regarding the seizing of Jew’s property, restrictions on where they could live and their confinement to Ghetto’s, imprisonment in concentration camps.

I chose to breakdown an existing timeline into catogories of expulsion, confinement, round patch etc. I found the time line on this website His name is Lewis Loflin and I highly recommend his site.
