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.
