The Longest Hatred: The History of Antisemitism


150 minutes
Source: Facets

The Longest Hatred traces anti-Semitism from its earliest manifestations in antiquity to ominous outbreaks in Germany, Russia, and elsewhere in the early 1990s. Contained are interviews with prominent scholars in Europe, America, and the Middle East, exploring the insidious attitude that often casts Jews as "permanent outsiders and threats to society"—an attitude that reached its full horror in Nazi Germany, but that neither began nor ended with the Holocaust.
