A Continent in Flux—Europe and its Jews Enter the 2020’s (Winter 2021)
Focusing on France, Germany, Poland, and Hungary—which among them contain the large majority of European Jewry—this three-session course will examine the current condition of their Jewish communities, now facing their greatest challenges since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
We will analyze the recent surge in anti-Semitism—from the right and left, and from Islamic extremists—the deteriorating image of Israel, advances and setbacks in commemorating the Holocaust, the sharp increase of populists and nativists in the highest government posts, and the implications of a weakening EU. We will also consider the unexpected flowering of Jewish culture in Europe even in the midst of such anxiety about the future.
Award-winning historian, educator, and teacher Fred Rosenbaum was the traveling scholar for ten study tours to seventeen European countries in the past decade.
