Judaism is the foundation of Christianity, and Christianity should have been the greatest protector of its sister religion. Not only did Christianity fail though to protect Judaism, but it also became its greatest persecutor. In our first presentation, we will review centuries of Christian anti-Judaism and its impact on modern antisemitism. Without the foundation of Christian anti-Judaism, the Holocaust would not have taken place.
