Holocaust Distortion, COVID-19, Antisemitism, Holocaust Education
This project explores the use of Holocaust distortion in the COVID-19 pandemic. It seeks to understand how Holocaust distortion has been used in the pandemic. It also aims to understand how the use of distorted information has contributed to current trends in global antisemitism. In order to answer these questions, this project compares accurate information about the Holocaust with the distorted information seen in protests around the world. It also examines current trends in antisemitism and explores links found between them. The findings of this project are significant because they help grant understanding about how Holocaust distortion can directly contribute to antisemitic instances. With this understanding, leaders may be able to create solutions for rising levels of antisemitism.
