in many areas of Europe the Jews were not given a full citizen status and were not allowed to own land so they were forced to practice trades which could be taken anywhere in case they were hased out of town/country. many chose to be doctors, lawyers and moneylenders or diamond traders.

Is a Jew a religion or a nationality?

Judaism is a religion, while being a Jew is an ethnicity. Being a Jew should never be categorized as a race, seeing as one can convert to Judaism ad be treated just like a native-born Jew. Jews do constitute their own ethnic group, which includes Jewish identity and a very rich heritage.

Why did Hitler regret being a Jew?

Hitler could not regret being a Jew because he was not a Jew. This myth I think began because there is a tombstone with the name of Hitler's mother on it in a German cemetery. The tombstone also has the Star of David. Ah ha, said those people who wondered if Hitler was a Jew. We have proof. Alas, they forgot to look at the birth day of the woman. She would have been in her 80's when she gave birth to Adolf. Sorry, he was not a Jew.

Can a Jew be buried in a Jewish cemetery if they have been tattooed by a Nazi concentration camp?

Any Jew with a tattoo can be buried in a Jewish cemetery. It doesn't matter if it's a Nazi tattoo or Mickey Mouse's face. It's just a myth that Jews with tattoos can't be buried in a Jewish cemetery.This myth arose because there are a few Orthodox cemeteries that will not allow burial of people with tattoos, but these rules are cemetery rules, and not Jewish law.

A wealthy Jew in Roman times would wear the same clothing that wealthy Romans or Greeks or Gauls would wear.
