My last words on the Ghetto, though to be truthful these aren’t my words.

I don’t speak Italian, other than the necessities of ordering food and drink in restaurant or deli, but this plaque on the walls of one of the  Venetian synagogues doesn’t take much skill to understand:

200 Venetian Jews

8000 Italian Jews

6,000, 000 European Jews

were hunted and tortured by barbaric hatred from foreign lands.

The events of Paris in January 2015 suggest it isn’t over.
