Wednesday, February 5
5:30 p.m.
Wolfensohn Hall

Shootings at synagogues in the U.S., attacks on Jewish people in France, and a fierce debate within the British Labour party. Anti-Semitism is back, but why? And what is different from the experiences of the 1930s? Speakers from the U.S. and Europe debate the issue:

Daniel Finkelstein
House of Lords and Associate Editor, The Times, London

Julie Gottlieb
Professor in Modern History, The University of Sheffield

Deborah Lipstadt
Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies, Emory University

Chaired by Dr. Karina Urbach
Institute for Advanced Study
