Why do Jews have horns?
In this original new book author Anton Felton explores, via artworks and cartoons, the myth of this longstanding anti-Semitic trope and how it found its place in social and political fabrications from medieval to modern times.
Professor David Hirsh, Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London continues this theme looking at contemporary anti-Semitism in the UK and the outrage produced by an anti-Semitic mural.
