The Roots and Resurgence of Anti-Semitism

Zoom presentation: July 27 at 7:00 PM

Join Zoom Meeting https://lynn-edu.zoom.us/j/95552918883?pwd=enhHaDBmTy9hbWc3WHB1VGtlZ01Hdz09


The term "resurgence" might not be the right word, because it implies that the hate went away -- which it never has. Every major organization that tracks hate has documented an alarming spike in both hate crimes against Jews and growing membership in neo-Nazi, KKK, and other hate groups over the past five years. This lecture traces a 2,000-year history of Anti-Semitism by exploring the sources of the hate and pseudo-science behind some of history's worst crimes, examines the "justifications" used by the Nazis and curriculum taught in Nazi schools, then closes by showing the linkages over time that are influencing the alarming developments today. The presentation will be made by Robert Watson, Ph.D. Dr. Watson is an author, historian, professor, and media commentator with over 40 published books and hundreds of scholarly articles on topics in history and politics. His book The Nazi Titanic uncovered the story of the final days of the Holocaust and a little-known and shocking story of a German ocean liner-turned floating concentration camp. It was featured at the National Jewish Book Council tour and is being made into a television film.
