York, 1190: The Jews of York died Al Kedushas Hashem.
It is interesting to note, the “1190 York” is awfully similar to “9/11 New York”, especially as in Europe it’s actually written “11/9!”
The cause of the massacre is not far away from where this post is written, in the City of Westminster, London, at St. James Palace. Jews were refused entry to the coronation of King Richard. Nonetheless, two Jews from York decided to enter the palace regardless, and attended anyway, causing a magnitude of pogroms throughout England, and reaching up north to the city of York. This transpired as a result of their selfish actions.
