Anti Semitism: Here and Now [92d St Y 2/11/2019]
Deborah Lipstadt in Conversation with Bari Weiss: What can be done to combat the alarming rise in antisemitism in the US and abroad? Award-winning author Deborah Lipstadt discusses her new book, Antisemitism: Here and Now.
Where is all this hatred coming from? Is there any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing antisemitism? What role has the anti-Zionist movement played? And what can be done to combat the latest manifestations of an ancient hatred? In a series of letters to an imagined college student and imagined colleague, both of whom are perplexed by this resurgence, acclaimed historian Deborah Lipstadt gives us her own superbly reasoned, brilliantly argued, and certain to be controversial responses to these troubling questions.
