For a very long time, the Jewish community in Rome, which is older than the Christian community, lived in abject poverty in this area. They were forbidden to leave the ghetto at night and could only work in a very few professions. They had to wear distinctive clothing and had a lot less rights than the Christian Roman citizens. This guidebook will tell you the complicated history of the Roman Jews and explain the life Jewish people had in the Ghetto. Also, many places of interest inside and outside the ghetto are described in detail. Reading this book is a good preparation for a visit to the ghetto, but it can also be read if you have no direct plans of going to Rome. The history of the Jewish community in Rome is interesting enough to read about, without a trip to Rome.
