History of the Jews in San Marino


History of the Jews in San Marino

The first mention of Jews in San Marino dates to the late 14th century, in official documents recording the business transactions of Jews. There are so many documents throughout the 15th to 17th centuries, which document Jewish dealings, that it is easy to justify the presence of a Jewish community in San Marino. Jews were also required to wear special badges and live by specific restrictions, but were also permitted official protection from the government.

During World War II, San Marino provided a harbor for more than 100,000 Italians and Jews from Nazi persecution. Today, there are only small numbers of Jews in San Marino.Fact|date=May 2007
