Our research shows that young people are often mystified by the targeting of Jews for mass murder.
This activity shows how teachers can work with the film Roots of antisemitism to uncover the origins of this ‘longest hatred’, and to explore continuity and change from medieval anti-Judaism to modern antisemitism. It provides essential knowledge and understanding to counter common myths and stereotypes of the Jewish people.
