Hundreds of Jews in Strasbourg, France, were publicly burnt to death.

Known as the Strasbourg massacre, it happened during and after the Black Death, and the Jews were blamed for the epidemic.

The Strasbourg massacre occurred on February 14, 1349, when several hundred Jews were publicly burnt to death, and the rest of them expelled from the city as part of the Black Death persecutions. Starting in the spring of 1348, pogroms against Jews had occurred in European cities, starting in Toulon.
