Part 3: Antisemitism: Present & Future –
The Holocaust took the lives of nearly six million Jews and represented one of the greatest catastrophes in human history. Unfortunately, even after the Shoah, the longest hatred continued as antisemitism expanded in Europe and the Middle East as the 20th Century progressed. Jewish-Americans for the most part were able to assimilate into American society, but challenges remained, and the United States faced many of its own issues regarding racism and bigotry. In our final presentation, we will explore antisemitism in the present, as well as projecting to the future.
