Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Since ancient times, Jews have repeatedly been victims of cultural, legal and physical persecution and violence. Even after the Shoah by the National Socialist regime, antisemitic violence has become a frightening reality of our time.
An important agent of this hatred of Jews is Christianity, although or rather because it developed out of Judaism.
The lecture deals with important stages of the persecution of Jews from antiquity to the present with the twofold aim: to develop a critical awareness of the history of growing anti-Semitism, especially in the history of Christianity, and to provide suggestions for combating anti-Semitism in the present.

Assessment and permitted materials

One essay exam (to be submitted via moodle) with the following deadlines:
June 30, 2021; July 30, 2021; September 30, 2021; Nov. 30, 2021.
Students will independently and critically describe the interplay of cultural, legal, and physical persecution of Jews and draw conclusions for combating anti-Semitism in the present.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The essay (approximately 2000 words) should reveal independent reflection and present a sense of context.
