Dachfoyer des Haus-, Hof- und Staatsarchivs, 1010 Wien, Minoritenplatz 1

 

Today, fantasies of Jewish conspiracy cast Jews as cosmopolitan agents of globalisation and as enemies of national values. But conspiratorial antisemitism has taken many different forms. In the twentieth century, none was more potent or more destructive than the myth of Judeo-Bolshevism – the paranoid fear that Jews incited and directed Communist revolutions in order to advance their own interests. In his talk, Paul Hanebrink will discuss the history of the Judeo-Bolshevik myth, analyse its shifting functions from the Russian Revolution to the end of Communism in 1989, and explore the legacy that this myth has le for today.

Paul Hanebrink is Professor of History and Jewish Studies at Rutgers University. His books include In Defense of Christian Hungary. Religion, Nationalism, and Antisemitism, 1890-1944 (2006) and A Specter Haunting Europe.The Myth of Judeo-Bolshevism (2018).
