Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt


Event Description:

Historian Deborah Lipstadt, an internationally-renowned expert on the Holocaust, will address the evolution of antisemitism as a paradigm for other forms of bigotry and hate.

While the term only dates back to the late 19th century, antisemitism has existed—and flourished –for more than 2,000 years. Antisemitism is a complex phenomenon with varied manifestations. It is the longest hatred, and its ideology has evolved and mutated over the centuries. Anti-Jewish hate has been expressed through acts of violence, legislation, and religious decree.  Dr. Lipstadt will explore this history, and the audience will learn how expressions of antisemitism can shed light on, and lead to greater understanding of, other expressions of bigotry.

Free parking available in both the front and side lots. Enter through the main lobby doors.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 3.

Presented by Congregation Beth-El Zedeck and the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library.
