Cre­at­ed to fill an exist­ing gap in Jew­ish edu­ca­tion­al mate­ri­als on anti­semitism for young audi­ences — high school and uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents in par­tic­u­lar—A Brief and Visu­al His­to­ry of Anti­semitism offers a unique­ly designed book that cov­ers the phe­nom­e­na of anti-Jew­ish hatred and decon­structs their evo­lu­tion from ancient times to the present day. In addi­tion to being com­pre­hen­sive in its breadth and depth, this large-for­mat book fea­tures Aug­ment­ed Real­i­ty tech­nol­o­gy that allows read­ers to use a free app to pull up the incred­i­ble trove of relat­ed archival mate­ri­als from vin­tage radio and tele­vi­sion broad­casts to 3D objects of key land­marks that can be exam­ined up close, enabling this work to be a tru­ly immer­sive edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ence. Ulti­mate­ly, more than aim­ing to sim­ply arm peo­ple with facts, this study’s pur­pose is to rein­force young Jews’ con­fi­dence in their cher­ished his­to­ry and pride in an unpar­al­leled, painful but no less beau­ti­ful, sto­ried heritage.
