All Jews in Styria Austria are Thrown in Prison

Albert II the Magnanimous, Duke of Austria
Source: Wikipedia

On orders from Albert II the Magnanimous, Duke of Austria, all of the Jews in Styria, Austria, are thrown in prison. Some end up being expelled after all their property is confiscated. Others are burned at the stake. A few agree to convert to Christianity. Children are sold into slavery or baptized against their will.

A large number of Jews remain free by barricading themselves in the Or-Sarua Synagoge at Judenplatz, Vienna. After a siege of many days, Rabbi Jonah sets the synagogue on fire to allow the Jews there to die as martyrs.
