Jews are forbidden from entering and settling in Russia. Tsar Alexander I began his reign as a relatively liberal ruler but then started enforcing anti-Semitic policies like those of his predecessors.

The official anti-Semitism began with forbidding Jews from employing Christian servants, a prohibition that one frequently finds in the bulls and declarations of medieval and early modern popes. There are also close parallels with early Nazi racial laws.

Now, shortly before his death, Alexander is trying to eliminate all Jews from his domains — again, something very similar to what will be seen during the early years of the Third Reich.
