POSTPONED: CC@H Guest Speakers Series: The Resurgence of Antisemitism with Walter Reich

Antisemitism is the world’s oldest human hatred. After the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were systematically murdered by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, antisemitism went on a kind of vacation; antisemitic sentiments, if felt, went largely unexpressed. But in recent years it has been on the rise once again. In the immediate wake of the brutal attack by Hamas against Israel on October 7th, it exploded around the world. This happened even before Israel responded to the Hamas attacks. Join CC@H and Walter Reich, who will put current events in the context of history, from the beginnings of antisemitism over two thousand years ago to the creation of the State of Israel and through the numerous wars and efforts at international accords between Israelis and Palestinians. The program will foster an understanding of the vagaries of public and official opinion, including our very own, and will provide ample time for participant questions and discussion.
Walter Reich is Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Professor of International Affairs, Ethics and Human Behavior, and Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, at George Washington University. A champion of the protection of global human rights for fifty years, he is a leading scholar who has written and lectured on the Holocaust and genocide, antisemitism, terrorism, human rights, national memory, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. From 1995 to 1998, Dr. Reich led the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and ensured that it served a critical purpose as a place of education as well as remembrance.
