Attempts to Describe Anti-Semitism: On the History of Research on Anti-Semitism before 1944
Book Presentation and Panel Discussion
Today’s antisemitism research is based on insights that were formulated during the Second World War and the Shoah. However, intellectuals and scholars described the peculiarities of modern political antisemitism in the 18th and 19th centuries. This transdisciplinary anthology is dedicated to these largely unknown description attempts.
Following the presentation of brief insights into the book, the publisher Professor Hans-Joachim Hahn (Aachen) and Dr. Olaf Kistenmacher (Hamburg) discuss with Dr. Werner Treß (Potsdam) and Franziska Krah (Potsdam) the question of why early antisemitism research remained largely ineffective.
A cooperation with De Gruyter Publishers, the Zentrum Jüdische Studien Berlin-Brandenburg and the Moses Mendelssohn Zentrum Potsdam.
