Antisemitism : here and now by Deborah E. Lipstadt
Call Number: DS145 L6157 2019
In Antisemitism, Deborah Lipstadt argues that this is a problem that comes from both ends of the political spectrum. She exposes those who use classic antisemitic imagery to attack Israel, and challenges those supporters of Israel who automatically equate criticism with antisemitism.
A history of antisemitism in Canada by Ira Robinson
Call Number: DS146 C2R62
Publication Date: 2015
A History of Antisemitism in Canada presents a state-of-the-art account of the phenomenon. It builds on the foundation of numerous previous studies on antisemitism in general and on antisemitism in Canada in particular, and builds on the growing body of scholarship in Canadian Jewish studies. It attempts to understand the ways in which antisemitism has impacted Canada as a whole, and examines most especially its influence on the development of Canada's Jewish community.
Holocaust Studies: Critical Reflections by Steven T. Katz
Call Number: Electronic
Publication Date: 2019
The distinctive feature of this book, both individually and as a collection, is its concentration on the Holocaust from a Judeo-centric point of view. The present essays make a unique contribution by exploring issues such as: the effect of events specifically on Jewish women and children; the character of the Nazi policy of slave labor in as much as this essential program resulted in different treatment with regard to Jews as compared to other workers; how the destruction of European Jewry has been responded to by Jewish thinkers; and how Jewish values, such as the well-known principle that 'all Jews are responsible for each other, ' were exemplified and lived out during the war.
Canada's Jews by Gerald Tulchinsky
Call Number: FC106 J5T845
Publication Date: 2008-06-14
The history of the Jewish community in Canada says as much about the development of the nation as it does about the Jewish people. Spurred on by upheavals in Eastern Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, many Jews emigrated to the Dominion of Canada, which was then considered little more than a British satellite state. Over the ensuing decades, as the Canadian Jewish identity was forged, Canada itself underwent the transformative experience of separating itself from Britain and distinguishing itself from the United States. In this light, the Canadian Jewish identity was formulated within the parameters of the emerging Canadian national personality.

In this provocative book, Marvin Perry and Frederick M. Schweitzer analyze the lies, misperceptions, and myths about Jews and Judaism that anti-semites have propagated throughout the centuries.
