From 3rd to 25th May 2012 the Maison de la Région Alsace in Strasbourg will host an exhibition featuring the life of Yossel of Rosheim (1478 – 1554), a major figure in Alsatian and European Jewish history.
Twenty illustrated panels relate the story of the life and works of Yossel of Rosheim, elected Jewish representative to the Holy Roman Empire.
This key period at the start of the European Renaissance saw the arrival of the Reformation and of Humanism in the Rhineland, saw also uprisings of the peasants and the persecution of Jews. Yossel of Rosheim campaigned to ensure their survival.
