Jews in Mainz are blamed for an outbreak of the bubonic plague, leading to a pogrom against them. They try to defend themselves and reportedly kill a couple of hundred of their Christian attackers. In the end, though, 6,000 Jews are killed — many burn themselves alive rather than fall into the hands of marauding Christians.
