Poems from the New Holocaust: Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century

Tuesdays, December 6–13 (2 weeks)
(snow make-up date Dec. 20)
10:30am–noon


Instructor: Eric Rozenman, Washington Director of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA)


Following the Nazi annihilation of six million Jews in the Holocaust, anti-Semitism fell into disrepute and was not openly expressed by “respectable” people in the West. Currently, however, a virulent resurgence of anti-Semitism appears in Europe, the Middle East, and even in the United States. Is this the old anti-Semitism resurfacing, once again rearing its ugly head, or is this the rise of a new form of anti-Semitism? Through six to eight poems (ancient, 20th century, 21st century), several written by the instructor and published in journals, this class will explore the evolution of anti-Semitism and its more recent manifestations in the world today.

Copies of the poems to be discussed and some background reading materials will be e-mailed in advance to those who register, and will also be provided at the first class.
