Collection Highlights

Antisemitism in Everyday Life

Perceptions and understandings of Jews throughout history have manifested in objects—from fine arts and crafts to everyday toys, knickknacks, and household items. The centuries-long history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics, and popular culture still plays a role in modern antisemitism.

The Museum recently acquired over 900 objects depicting Jews and antisemitic and anti-Jewish propaganda from the Medieval to the modern era, created and distributed throughout Europe, Russia, and the United States. Learn more about what these objects can tell us about antisemitism during the Holocaust and today.
