about

This book is the first comprehensive study of postwar antisemitism in the Netherlands. It focuses on the way stereotypes are passed on from one decade to the next, as reflected in public debates, the mass media, protests and commemorations, and everyday interactions. The Holocaust, Israel and ‘the Jew’ explores the ways in which old stories and phrases relating to "the stereotypical Jew" are recycled and modified for new uses, linking the antisemitism of the early postwar years to its enduring manifestations in today’s world.
 
The chapters cover themes including soccer-related antisemitism, Jewish responses, philosemitism, antisemitism in Dutch-Moroccan and Dutch-Turkish communities, contentious acts of remembrance, the neo-Nazi tradition, and the legacy of Theo van Gogh. The book concludes with a lengthy epilogue on "the Jew" in the politics of the radical right, the attacks in Paris in 2015, and the refugee crisis.
Remco Ensel teaches cultural history at Radboud University Nijmegen. Evelien Gans held the chair of modern Jewish history at the University of Amsterdam.

Editorial Reviews

“An impressive and timely collection of essays. . . this is a very welcome volume, fit for teaching, and suitable as a handbook. It has a keen eye for controversy and tensions, for the political framework of incidents, and for the continuities and transformations of antisemitism. It is highly recommended.”
