Understanding Anti-Semitism in France, From Dreyfus to Today
Understanding Anti-Semitism in France, From Dreyfus to Today with Dr. Pierre Birnbaum, Université de Paris & Dr. Maurice Samuels, Yale University
The reemergence of anti-Semitism as a political and social movement in the 1890s surprised both Jews and their friends, who thought old prejudices had all but died out. This lecture will explore that reemergence and the evolution of anti-Semitism from the time of the Dreyfus Affair and the era’s virulently anti-Semitic press to a second, more vicious wave in the 1930s and again in the 21st century. It will also address how French Jews have understood each wave and defended themselves against the hatred.
