Lars Fischer, Centre for the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations
The Socialist Response to Anti-Semitism in Imperial Germany by Lars Fischer demonstrates that most Socialists at the time felt that the anti-Semites had a point but took matters too far. In fact, Social Democratic objections to the anti-Semitic movement often did not hinge on its anti-Jewish orientation at all. Even when they did, the Socialists’ arguments generally acknowledged widespread anti-Jewish stereotypes rather than questioning them. This lecture and book presents a radical reinterpretation of the Socialist response to anti-Semitism in Imperial Germany. Fischer’s lecture will offer a brief summary of the book’s main arguments but mainly address some of the issues raised by the book’s reviewers and his own most recent research.
The pre-lecture reception starts at 6:15pm in the Terrace Restaurant (Wilkins Building), and will be followed by the lecture at 6:45pm in the Chadwick Lecture Theatre (Chadwick Building).
