Antisemitism: A persistent threat: Learn More at the USHMM Online

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Antisemitism has surged around the world in the last year. The current pandemic is adding fuel to the fire as some have preyed on the isolation, fear, and economic insecurity brought on by the coronavirus to scapegoat Jews and other minorities.

This week, we invite you to join Museum experts, including Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, as they discuss the changing face of antisemitism and what it tells us about the world today. Confronting unchecked hatred is one way we honor the pledge that many of us took last week during Days of Remembrance to keep Holocaust memory alive as an active force for change.
