Rabbi Brandt Lecture 2013:
The Language of Hostility Towards Jews
Lecture by Monika Schwarz-Friesel
11 November 2013
The annual lectures of the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation honor Rabbi Dr. h.c. Henry G. Brandt for his impetuses in interreligious dialog. The language and cognitive scientist Professor Monika Schwarz-Friesel talks about the passing on and perpetuating of anti-Jewish stereotypes and resentments. Even today’s speech reflects phrases that were used in the Middle Ages and that during the Nazi era belonged to the standard repertoire of verbal discrimination against Jews.
