Claire Greenstein, a postdoctoral fellow in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and Elizabeth Osman, a fourth-year International Affairs student in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, have written an article titled, "Remembering Antisemitism When Public Memory Is Fleeting" in New America.

Find an excerpt: 

Reports on antisemitism are important not because they act as a warning system to Jewish communities—which they generally don’t—but, rather, because they play a crucial role in shaping society’s memory culture. It may seem like the mere existence of the Holocaust ought to serve as reminder enough that antisemitism is dangerous, evil, and persistent. But public memory isn’t static. Instead, seemingly permanent narratives are constantly supplanted, reinterpreted, and reconstructed in light of current events.
