The Holocaust and Antisemitism

Front Cover
Oneworld Publications, Feb 17, 2003 - Religion - 354 pages

Covering challenging new material in a sensitive and objective manner, this accessible text seeks out the root causes of centuries of hatred towards the Jewish people and their culture. Jocelyn Hellig assesses the debates surrounding antisemitism, arguing that recent conflicts in Israel have their roots in the attempted genocide of the Jews. Adopting a thematic approach, the text addresses such key topics as the rise of Christian and Islamic antisemitism and current issues surrounding Holocaust denial. It is aimed at all those who seek to know more about the persecution of the Jews and its impact not only on Jewish culture, but on the world as a whole.
