ANTISEMITISM

Director Ilan Ziv traces the origins of antisemitism in France from the Middle Ages to the Dreyfus Affair. Combining personal and collective narratives, Ziv showcases how the depiction of "the Jew" in society established an ideology of hate that eventually led to the Holocaust. In the aftermath of the war, a devastated France continued this ideology of antisemitism that sets the stage for a modern wave of anti-Jewish sentiment, Holocaust deniers and hate crimes. Historians and intellectuals reveal how French anti-Semitism has been normalized, even institutionalized, in a country that extols liberty and equality.
