THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION
AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
AT TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY
Between 1903 and 1907 the first editions of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were published in Russia. Since then The Protocols, claiming a Jewish world conspiracy, has become the most widespread antisemitic tool, having been translated into numerous languages and published throughout the world.
To mark 100 years of the appearance of The Protocols, the Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with the Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung, Technische Universität Berlin is planning to hold an international conference, entitled "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion – 100 years".
The conference, which will take place on the university campus on
October 24 – 27, 2004, will address the following topics:
The origins of the notion of a Jewish conspiracy in the medieval Christian world and its impact on Jewish-Christian relations.
The genesis of The Protocols in response to Jewish integration in Europe.
The Protocols in the service of Nazi Germany.
The notion of a Jewish conspiracy and the dissemination of The Protocols in the US.
The notion of a Jewish conspiracy as a political tool in communist countries.
The Protocols in South America.
The Protocols in the Arab world.
Legislation and legal cases against dissemination of The Protocols, verdicts and enforcement.
Holocaust denial as a variant of The Protocols.
