Course Description

ONLINE: Antisemitic behavior is increasing and becoming more widespread. Jews are blamed for the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict. Political/social debates are replete with Holocaust misappropriations. And 87% of American Jews feel less safe today. What's behind this? Why are Jews the most targeted religious community in the U.S.? What is antisemitism, and how can we recognize it? How does this hatred of Jews factor into the Holocaust and the Israeli-Arab conflict? Why do we need to keep learning about the Holocaust? Through videos/slides, lectures and discussion, students will gain a better awareness of: 1) the deep-rooted historical myths behind the centuries-long hatred of Jews that led to the Holocaust, but didn't end there; 2) the events of the Holocaust; 3) some facts behind Israel's continuous fight for its survival; 4) some current manifestations of antisemitism across the political spectrum; 5) the impact of our own attitudes and behaviors; 6) what we can do to make a difference. | Lecture + Q&A.
