Anti-Jewish Pogroms in Lithuania under the Tsars
Lecture by Darius Staliunas of the Lithuanian Institute of History
In 19th century Russian-ruled Lithuania, anti-Jewish feelings were widespread among the Christian population. This talk will demonstrate this by focusing on blood libel accusations as well as describing the role of modern anti-Semitism. Staliunas will identify the structural preconditions and the specific triggers that turned anti-Jewish feelings into collective violence, and analyze the nature of this violence.
Event is free and open to the public. There is an elevator and accessible and gender neutral restrooms on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact the Judaic Studies office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-763-9047.
