Please ignore the date, it’s just there so it’s not auto-removed.
I think I remember this from a Wendigoon video but it could have been somewhere else. There was a small community of people in Spain that were arbitrarily strongly discriminated against in the middle ages and early Modern period. The discrimination was so bad that they had to live completely isolated to everyone else. After centuries of living like this, the effects of inbreeding occurred which reinforced people’s beliefs that they were not ‘normal’. Eventually I think they managed to re-integrate into society, or they were wiped out in the 20th century. The only known living descendant was interviewed by some journalist within the past 10 years.
Some other clarifications:
* The article can be found online
* I think it was in the Basque region but I’m not certain
* I believe the people had a high rate of dwarfism but once again I’m not sure
