Antisemitism, Judeophobia, and the Republic

(p.278) 31 Antisemitism, Judeophobia, and the Republic
The French Republic

This chapter discusses Antisemitism and its specific misconceptions in the context of France. It distinguishes between Judeophobia—a generalized dislike of Jews in a given population—and Antisemitism (with a capital A)—a systematic public attitude incarnated in an organized political movement. Judeophobia encompasses greatly varying degrees of hatred, contempt, scorn, and fear vis-à-vis Jewish people; in one form or other, it was an unfortunate constant of all of pre-1945 European history, a social condition of virtually any era. Antisemitism, however, dates from 1879–80 and was a European phenomenon, arising all but simultaneously in several of the Continent's leading polities.

Keywords:   Antisemitism, Judeophobia, Jews, European history, political movement, French Antisemitism, Jewish people
