Cambridge Holocaust Memorial Day Lecture: Facing Antisemitism, Rebuilding Anti-Racism

Facing Antisemitism: Rebuilding Anti-Racism

This talk looks at antisemitism, the primary motivator of the Holocaust, and calls for a way of confronting it that locates it within the larger global history of racism. In particular, I will draw out some of the ways that anti-Jewish racism and anti-Muslim racism have historically been related to each other. Looking at antisemitism in this relational way can enable stronger anti-racist responses to antisemitism, as part of the challenge of standing together across communities.
