Democracy in Peril: Antisemitism and the Judeo-Bolshevik Myth, the History and Legacy of a Stereotype


In recent years, we have witnessed a resurgence of antisemitism in the United States and across the globe. Dr. Paul Hanebrink, a history professor at Rutgers University and the author of A Specter Haunting Europe: The Myth of Judeo-Bolshevism, will discuss the history and legacy of antisemitism over the last century, focusing in particular on the Judeo-Bolshevik myth that linked Jews with socialism and was used to justify disenfranchisement, persecution, and genocide. Hanebrink will discuss the historical causes of antisemitism and the reasons for its recent resurgence.
