What’s your anti-Semitic poison? Conference tackles Jew-hatred at home and abroad

 Scholars on anti-Semitism from Europe and the United States gathered at the Berlin campus of Indiana University’s European branch on June 30 to discuss “A Transatlantic Wave of Anti-Semitism? Jew-Hatred in Europe and the United States.”

The conference was organized by Indiana University’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and spearheaded by faculty member, Günther Jikeli, an expert on European Muslim anti-Semitism.
