Anti-Semitism Today – The New Normal

Experiences, Information, Reasoning

Many young people have only come across the term anti-Semitism in connection with Nazism.

Yet anti-Semitic foe images can be found in almost all areas of our society today – some are quite obvious, others well concealed. Anti-Semitic stereotypes and remarks occur with increasing frequency in the classroom.

This seminar examines the many faces of anti-Semitism and incorporates the experiences pupils have made with it. Employing various methods, the origins and different forms and functions of anti-Semitism today will be analyzed and the ways of reacting to it discussed.
