Antisemitism Before the Nazis
August 1 + 4, 6-8pm ET
When we think of antisemitism in Europe, our minds commonly turn to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. But in truth, the story neither starts nor ends there. In this course, we will examine how antisemitism became a fixture in European politics, culture, and society in the modern era. As we will see, the Final Solution was only the most radical answer to a “Jewish Question” that had vexed Europeans since the Enlightenment.
