The Resurgence of Antisemitism with Walter Reich
Tuesday, January 30, 2024, 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC-05:00)
Antisemitism is the world’s oldest human hatred. After the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were systematically murdered by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, antisemitism went on a kind of vacation; antisemitic sentiments, if felt, went largely unexpressed. But in recent years it has been on the rise once again. And, in the immediate wake of the brutal attack by Hamas against Israel on October 7th, it exploded around the world. This happened even before Israel responded to the Hamas attacks. On January 30th, Walter Reich, former director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, will put current events in the context of history, from the beginnings of antisemitism over two thousand years ago to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 and through the numerous wars and efforts at international accords between Israelis and Palestinians. The program will foster an understanding of the vagaries of public and official opinion, including our very own, and will provide ample time for participant questions and discussion. Please join us for this extraordinary opportunity.
To encourage open discussion, this Zoom event will not be recorded. Open to All.
