        Antisemitism and Violence in Modern Europe

        Learn about different ways antisemitism erupted into violence against European Jews in this video from Finding Your Roots. Singer-songwriter Carole King, attorney Alan Dershowitz, and playwright and screenwriter Tony Kushner all have ancestors who lived in Eastern Europe during a time when being Jewish could make you the target of attacks. Violence ranged from individual communities being targeted in pogroms to the Holocaust, in which the Nazis tried to eliminate the entire Jewish population.
