After Auschwitz: Antisemitism in America
January 26 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PMCost: Free
Nearly half of American adults do not know what the term antisemitism means—or say they have never heard the word. How do we push back against antisemitism and other forms of hate and intolerance when the broader society is ignorant? Why is combating antisemitism also a problem for non-Jews? And how do we work together to lower levels of antisemitism in America?
On the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Eastern Michigan University Center for Jewish Studies will host Holly Huffnagle, U.S. Director for Combating Antisemitism for the American Jewish Committee (AJC) to address these pertinent questions.
This presentation is co-sponsored by the American Jewish Committee, the Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC, Hillel at Eastern Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University Campus Life, and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The Center for Jewish Studies would also like to offer a special thank you to Art and Mary Schuman.
