Conference: Europe, Germany and Contemporary Antisemitism
March 15, 2015 at the Bnei Zion auditorium, Tel Aviv
During the last few years antisemitism is on the rise in Europe. Violent manifestations and physical assaults against Jewish citizens became commonplace. Even more significant, is the sharp rise of the public anti-Semitic discourse. It seems that it has become a ‘bon-ton’ to be anti-Semitic, sometimes camouflaged by sophisticated use of language. But, should contemporary antisemitism be considered as a ‘Jewish problem’ only? Or is it a reflection of inherent problems of today’s Europe? Continue reading

Many countries have implemented annual Holocaust commemoration events and educational programs on the Holocaust. However, antisemitism is on the rise and in fact often voiced with references to the Holocaust. Jews are accused of exploiting ‘the Holocaust’ while perpetrating a Holocaust-like genocide against the Pal-estinians and Jews and Israelis are inappropriately compared to Nazis. Previous research suggests that such tropes are common in Europe and that many Euro-peans believe that Jews try to take advantage of their status as victims during the Nazi era. However, no cross-country research has been done to estimate similarities and differences of this problem.
This international symposium explores the relation between specific perceptions of the Holocaust and antisemitism, and presents and discusses upcoming re-search projects on this topic. Several country specific case studies will be pre-sented and discussed in a cross-country perspective: How are Jews and the Holocaust perceived in different countries? What are the notions of the Holocaust and Jews which allow individuals or groups to voice antisemitic resentments with references to the Holocaust? Who is perceived to have perpetrated the Holocaust? How do the relations between antisemitism and the perception of the Holocaust in public and private discourses and at Holocaust commemoration events differ in the countries that were studied?

The symposium brought together scholars, educators and other experts who have dealt with the issue of European Muslims’ perceptions of the Holocaust in one way or another or whose expertise adds to a further understanding of the backgrounds of how European Muslims are informed about the Holocaust.
It became clear, once again, that European Muslims are far from being a homogeneous group. The factors of influence on European Muslims’ perceptions of the Holocaust need further exploration. In addition to relevant factors of the general population in Europe, some specific factors emerged, such as the discourses about the Holocaust in the countries of origin and communities and also respective discourses about Jews; views of the Holocaust are influenced by views of Jews and vice versa.
For an understanding of European Muslims’ perception of the Holocaust it is important to take the history of Holocaust remembrance in Europe and in the countries of origin into account.
