Antisemitism never goes out of fashion.
It adapts endlessly to the anxieties of the age. Pandemic? Jews are behind it. Immigration? Jews are orchestrating it. Terrorist atrocity? A Zionist plot. A new anthology of essays, Looking for an Enemy, looks at the global resurgence of antisemitism across Europe and in the US.
Join journalist and writer David Aaronovitch; contributor to the anthology, Rabbi Jill Jacobs, and anthology editor Jo Glanville for a timely discussion on a timeless problem.
Looking for an enemy: eight essays on antisemitism is published by Short Books on 6 May. Contributors include Tom Segev, Olga Grjasnowa, Mikołaj Grynberg, Daniel Trilling and Natasha Lehrer.
