1322- France epelled all its Jews for the third time. After having been allowed back into France in the year 1315 (after the expulsion in 1306 by Philip IV), the Jews were once again expelled from France by Charles IV, who thus broke the pledge made by his predecessors in 1315 that the Jews would be able to stay in France for at least 12 years.

 

1738- A Jew and a Russian Naval officer (the officer had converted to Judaism) were both burned at the stake in St. Petersburg.
