The history of the Jewish people in France began in Gaul, with small settlements in Mediterranean towns. By the Middle Ages, a remarkably integrated Jewish population was found in every occupation: peasants, winemakers, craftsmen, merchants, doctors. A rich Jewish culture eventually flourished, with philosophers, astronomers, and famous commentators of the Bible. However, at the time of the Crusades, Christians branded Jews as “killers of Christ,” identifying them with Judas the traitor, suddenly omnipresent in religious art, and accusing them of the most abominable crimes. Discover ten centuries of Jewish life in the kingdom of France.

On December 2, 1805, a year after becoming the Emperor of France, Napoléon triumphed over Austria and Russia in his most famous battle: Austerlitz. Thanks to this victory, he put an end to the third coalition against France and held off the dominion of two powerful adversaries. This victory made him the master of Europe for several years. To this day, Napoléon remains the most admired war strategist in the world.
