Der Antisemitismus breitete sich seit den 1930er Jahren nicht nur in Deutschland rapide aus, wo er ab 1933 zentraler Teil der staatlichen Politik wurde, sondern auch in den meisten anderen Europäischen Ländern. Diese Entwicklung kulminierte in den ersten Anti-Jüdischen Gesetzen außerhalb Deutschlands 1938 in Italien, Rumänien und Ungarn, so wie in einem Anwachsen antisemitischer Gruppen und einer Welle antisemitischer Zwischenfälle nach 1935.

Die Konferenz untersucht die Hintergründe, Strukturen und Konsequenzen dieser Entwicklungen, welche sich unter der Deutschen Vorherrschaft ab 1940/41 vollends radikalisierten.

Die Konferenz wird vom 18.-20. Februar 2016 in München stattfinden. Die Konferenzsprache ist Englisch.

Wegen beschränkter räumlicher Kapazitäten ist für die Teilnahme eine schriftliche Anmeldung unter zfhs@ifz-muenchen.de erforderlich. Es erfolgt eine schriftliche Bestätigung durch das Zentrum.

------------------------------
During the 1930s, Antisemitism grew rapidly, not only in Germany, where it became a central focus of state policies from 1933 on, but in most European countries. This culminated in the issue of the first non-German anti-Jewish laws in 1938 in Italy, Romania and Hungary, but also in an upsurge of Antisemitic groups and a wave of Antisemitic incidents after 1935. The conference examines the background, structures and consequences of these developments, which fully radicalized under German hegemony in Europe from 1940/41 on.

The conference will take place between the 18th of February and the 20th of Febrary, 2016 in Munich, Germany. The conference will be conducted in English.

Due to limited capacities interested participants have to register via zfhs@ifz-muenchen.de.
The registration has to be confirmed by the Center for Holocaust Studies.
