Art & Anti-Semitism

Thursday, June 2, 2-3:30 pm (ET)  on Zoom  

Save! Register by May 31st for "Early Bird" pricing! 

 When talking about antisemitism, people often think about the Nazi regime and contemporary antisemitism, maybe about the Spanish Inquisition and other events within the past couple of centuries. However, anti-Semitism has been expressed in visual art since the early Middle Ages. This and other types of discrimination were encouraged by political and religious powers, all of which paved the way for persecution and genocide. Jews have been depicted as monsters, sub-humans, animals, or even demons. 

Join our professional guide and lecturer - Claudia - for a repeat of this thought-provoking lecture that was such a smash in February, we feel compelled to offer it again.  See an array of paintings, sculptures, reliefs, and gargoyles through the ages, each providing clear evidence of an anti-Semitic agenda. These images were the political cartoons and posters of the age…and most remain visible today.
