Award winning journalist Marc Weitzmann presents on the history and present crisis of anti Semitism in France—and its dire message for the rest of the world.
Before the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the Bataclan night club, and others made international headlines, Marc Weitzmann had noticed a surge of seemingly random acts of violence against the Jews of France. He looks at both the small-scale and large-scale acts of violence, and their roots in two very specific forms of populism, to show how the rebirth of French Anti-Semitism relates to the new global terror wave, revealing France to be a localized laboratory for a global phenomenon.
