Well it's an atlas of Jewish history all right. Lots of maps showing things in Jewish history. One of the things I could rather interesting is the high amount of Jewish occupation around Genova. Given I have a medieval persona who I want to have a few Jewish traits (in order to disguise my own following of the dietary laws) and he is from that area, I am wondering if a relative being a crypto-Jew is a real possibility.
