Please join us at Roosevelt House as we welcome the renowned historian Deborah Lipstadt, who will discuss her new book Anti-Semitism: Here and Now, her acclaimed analysis of an intractable and resurgent anti-Jewish hatred, focusing on its current, virulent incarnations on both the political right and left.

Lipstadt, the Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University, and author of The Eichmann Trial and Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory, among other books, will explore such questions as where all this hatred is coming from; whether there is any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing antisemitism; and what role has the anti-Zionist movement played? In conversation with Leah Garrett, Professor and Director of the Center for Jewish Studies at Hunter, she will also examine what can be done to combat the latest manifestations of an ancient hatred.

Writing in The New York Times Book Review, Bret Stephens praised Professor Lipstadt achievement: “She has written a book that combines erudition, clarity, accessibility and passion at a moment when they could not be needed more.”

We hope you will be able to participate in this important discussion.
