Understanding antisemitism and how it has manifested throughout history is no easy task. In this presentation we will explore the current definition of antisemitism, how it has been expressed historically, and how is presents itself today. Specifically discussing the way in which anti-Zionism can be a form of antisemitism, and how scapegoating has been a core feature of this hatred from time immemorial.
