Jews Expelled From Berne, Switzerland

Jewish Figures from 1882

Jews are expelled from city and canton of Berne, Switzerland. Christians usually tried to avoid "infection" from Jews by walling them off in ghettos and restricting their ability to go outside it. Sometimes, though, even that isn't enough, and Jewish communities are simply expelled entirely (after their property is confiscated).

This frequently occurs in the wake of some crime which the Jews are accused of committing: desecration of a church, killing a Christian child and taking their blood, etc. In such cases the Jews are sometimes slaughtered entirely, so being expelled is almost a relief.
