83 years after the Pogrom Night of 1938, a new study detailing how to defeat antisemitism is being presented in Vienna today under the patronage of the President of the Austrian National Council, Mag. Wolfgang Sobotka, the City of Vienna and the European Jewish Congress. The study An End to Antisemitism! will be handed over to the Republic of Austria, to the general Austrian public and then distributed by the European Jewish Congress to various stakeholders around the continent.
An End to Antisemitism! is the outcome of an international high-level conference that was held in Vienna in 2018 as a collaboration between the University of Vienna, together with New York University, Tel Aviv University and the European Jewish Congress.
The five volumes aim to prevent Jew-hatred today and in the future. 119 international experts scrutinize the multi-faceted problem of antisemitism: they shed light onto the history of antisemitism and onto its specific features and, based on their analysis, offer recommendations for a joint and effective fight against antisemitism.
Among the authors are renowned political and religious decision makers such as Katharina von Schnurbein (European Coordinator on Combating Anti-Semitism), Natan Sharansky (former Chairman of the Jewish Agency), Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa (Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem) and Imam Hassen Chalgoumi (President of the Conférence des Imams de France).
The study includes five parts. The first is offering practical solutions and recommendations to decision-makers, the second part deals with Jew-hatred in religion, the third deals with the history of antisemitism, the fourth with its role in philosophy, pedagogy and social sciences, and the fifth explores manifestations in (modern) media, in the legal and political worlds.
The study is available in print or as open access eBook on degruyter.com.
