1791 : Emancipation of the Jews in France

On September 28, 1791, France was the first country to emancipate its Jewish population. The Jews lived at that time in communities separated from the rest of the population and had limited rights. With emancipation, the Jews became full citizens. Throughout the 19th century, other European countries and the United States made more or less similar decisions. However, it was not until 1917 that Russia decided emancipation. In Germany, Jews lost all their rights again in 1933 before being physically eliminated.
