Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World during the Holocaust–and Its Aftereffects and Echoes in Recent Years

The Berger Holocaust Lecture
Jeffrey Herf, University of Maryland
Thursday, April 3 / 7:00 pm / Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond
A Perspectives on Israel event

Herf explores the intellectual, political, and cultural context in which German and European radical anti-Semitism was found to resonate with similar views rooted in a selective appropriation of the traditions of Islam. Importantly, he also shows how the anti-Semitism promoted by the Nazi propaganda effort contributed to the anti-Semitism exhibited by adherents of radical forms of Islam in the Middle East today.
