Graphic History of Antisemitism

Jerome J. Forman

Available Now


There are two groups of Jews in the world: the Jews who are no different than any other people and the Jews who are figments of imagination and defined by misleading stereotypes. The second group is the fantasy of the antisemite and they are the subject matter of this book. American and European antisemitism is seen through a rare and unique collection of postcards, letters, newspapers, advertisements, and cartoons captured in over 270 photos. The thought-provoking text explores the motives for creating these derogatory materials and the rationale for buying them. Although antisemitism is but one of many hateful and bigoted human beliefs, it stands alone as the most vicious; its existence is the longest of its kind in human history; and its consequences have been fatal for millions. Antisemitism is humankind at its worst. That hatred, in whatever form, makes victims of us all.
