Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg summarized the historical progression of “Christian” Anti-Semitism in this way:
1.You have no right to live among us as Jews.
2.You have no right to live among us.
3.You have no right to live.
In this book, I have organized this history chronologically. It shows a pattern repeated again and again from the Roman period through the present day. We witness Crusades, Inquisitions, Expulsions and Pogroms, all of which culminated in the Holocaust. As we study this history we can see the year-by-year, decade-by-decade and century-by-century operation of the spirit of Anti-Semitism. History shows us when, where and how it spread. It temporarily subsides in one place and then emerges in another. We are witnessing its present-day resurgence, not only via violent terrorist attacks but in many other ways as well.
