During the Black Death, Jews in what is now Germany were made scapegoats and attacked in pogroms. They fled, some burying their most precious possessions, hoping to return. The 'treasures' of this exhibition catalogue are two such hoards of wedding rings, jewellery, gold and silver tablewares and coins. They are described and illustrated, along with essays on the Colmar and Erfurt hoards and their cultural context.
