In 1937, the pamphlet “Islam and Judaism” heralded the arrival in the Muslim world of a new form of Jew-hatred: Islamic antisemitism. How did Nazi ideas penetrate the Arab and Muslim world world and what is their legacy today?
Dr Matthias Kuentzel, author of the new book Nazis und der Nahe Osten will present new archive findings showing how the image of Jews in Islam changed between 1937 and 1948 under the influence of radio propaganda
and other Nazi activities. Recording here.
“This is a magnificent and important work of historical research, synthesis and interpretation. […] I know of no other work, certainly no other written in Europe and the United States in recent decades,
that so convincingly demonstrates the causal importance of Nazi interaction with the Arabs. ‘Nazis and the Middle East’ will have a particularly strong impact on young academics, journalists, writers and citizens.”
