Welcome to our educational resource page for Antisemitism Explained, a social media campaign of the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation/Horwitz-Wasserman Holocaust Memorial Plaza.
In light of the recent spike in antisemitic incidents, our goal with this campaign is to stop the proliferation of antisemitic themes and statements on social media. Each week, we’ll be sharing on social media a critique of a piece of hateful propaganda, with the goal of educating the general public on how to recognize antisemitic content.
In some cases, people share this type of offensive material because of deep-seated hatred. But in many others, people share content without understanding its offensive message. Some people may look at a photo filled with hurtful stereotypes and not realize exactly what it means or how harmful it is.
As always, our goal is to educate the public on how to recognize damaging stereotypes and fight back against them. We want to ensure that the next generation has the tools and knowledge to help push us all towards a more tolerant future.
