In this talk, the editors and contributing authors of the book, ‘Antisemitism on Social Media’, will discuss how social media has revolutionised the dissemination of antisemitism and how this impacts not only victims of antisemitic hate speech but also society at large.

More than 75 years after the Holocaust, antisemitism is on the rise again on the left as well as the far right. Our speakers have expertise on antisemitism in France, Britain and Germany, and amongst the topics that they will consider are recent manifestations of antisemitism in these countries; the connections that current day antisemitism has with antisemitism in the past, and the reasons why antisemitism persists.
In this talk, Dr Barbara Warnock, curator of the Library’s latest exhibition will discuss the genesis of the exhibition project, the process of curation and explore some of the key documents, photographs and artefacts on display.
In partnership with Yet Again, the Library is hosting a panel discussion and inviting expert speakers to discuss some of the issues surrounding Holocaust distortion today.
In light of Vladimir Putin’s spurious goal of “de-Nazifying” Ukraine and to think about how historical knowledge can be applied to current crises, the Library is pleased to host this virtual panel which will analyse Ukrainian-Jewish relations in the 20th and 21st centuries.
