Blood Libel: A Lie Still Bleeding

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

Also known as, Ritual Murder, the Blood Libel is a centuries-old anti-Semitic canard, which alleges Jews use the blood of Christian children in the baking of matzah. This malicious fabrication, which has been used to sow the seeds of systemic hatred, first appeared in medieval England before spreading its vile throughout Europe, Czarist Russia and eventually into the United States. In this course, we will examine the reasons this vicious lie has perpetuated and thrived for nearly one thousand years by studying the more significant cases of this enduring evil fiction. This class begins on April 8th and meets weekly on Thursdays (April 8, 15, 22, & 29).
