Skip to 0 minutes and 0 secondsAs Prof. Rosenfeld clearly states, antisemitism did not end with the war, and current expressions of it call for attention on both a scholarly and policy level. It is on this note that we move on to the second part of our course, in which we will examine the ways antisemitism has been expressed and manifested in the years following the Holocaust, leading up to contemporary times. We thus conclude the first three weeks of our course, which traced the history of antisemitism, beginning in the Greco-Roman world and ending with the Holocaust.

Skip to 0 minutes and 33 secondsAs we will see, the manifestations of antisemitism that have become familiar to us throughout this part of the course will continue to exist, in different forms and degrees, in the contemporary world as well. We will also examine, how in addition to these, new forms of antisemitism have developed in relation to changes and events taking place in the postwar years.

Conclusion and looking ahead to week 4

Well done on completing week 3 of “Antisemitism: From Its Origins to the Present.”

Next week we will move on to the contemporary world, examining how antisemitism is expressed today and where it can be found. As we will see, the manifestations of antisemitism that have become familiar to us throughout the past three weeks will continue to exist, in different forms and degrees. We will also examine how new forms of antisemitism have developed in relation to the changes and events that have taken place since the end of WWII.
