About the series

The French Jewish Experience

For a thousand years, French Jews have swung on a pendulum from triumph to tragedy. Some of the greatest Jewish rabbis, composers and thinkers, going as far back as Rashi and his grandson Rebenu Tam, have made France their home. Yet despite their wide-ranging successes, France’s Jews are no strangers to the woes of the modern Jewish experience.

Understanding Anti-Semitism in France, From Dreyfus to Today

with Dr. Pierre Birnbaum, Université de Paris

and Dr. Maurice Samuels, Yale University

The reemergence of anti-Semitism as a political and social movement in the 1890s surprised both Jews and their friends, who thought old prejudices had all but died out. This lecture will explore that reemergence and the evolution of anti-Semitism from the time of the Dreyfus Affair and the era’s virulently anti-Semitic press to a second, more vicious wave in the 1930s and again in the 21st century. It will also address how French Jews have understood each wave and defended themselves against the hatred.
