        Little Hugh

        This video from the PBS series The Story of the Jews offers an overview of Medieval Britain and how the powers that be—the King and the Catholic Church—treated the Jewish population in the city of Lincoln. Aaron of Lincoln, a powerful moneylender and one of the city’s Jewish residents, financed the building of cathedrals and palaces in Lincoln and beyond. Unfortunately for Jewish residents like Aaron, power made them vulnerable to Britain’s anti-Jewish elite, as host Simon Schama describes through the story of “Little Hugh.”
