Blood libel, the malicious myth that Jews engage in
ritualistic murder, has been one of the most persistent tropes of
antisemitism across the millennia. Join us as Dr. Magda Teter,
Professor of History and the Shvidler Chair of Judaic Studies at
Fordham University, presents the next
lecture in the Daniel and Marisa Klass USC Shoah
Foundation Lecture Series on Antisemitism. She
will discuss her award-winning book, Blood Libel: On the Trail of an Antisemitic
Myth, and address how the blood libel
continues to manifest today.

testimonies from the Visual History Archive.
