Racism—racial antisemitism—was the core of Nazi ideology and the driving force behind the Holocaust. Although Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South were different, Nazi leaders learned from racist thought and practices in the Jim Crow South. Join us to take a look at how racism and antisemitism were linked in this era and what the implications are today.
This event is the second in the two-part Hate and Its Impact series. The first program, Hate and Its Impact: Sowing the Seeds of Global Antisemitism, focused on the roots of antisemitism and the continued global impact they have today.
