In 19th century Russian-ruled Lithuania, anti-Jewish feelings were widespread among the Christian population. This talk will demonstrate this by focusing on blood libel accusations as well as describing the role of modern anti-Semitism. Staliunas will identify the structural preconditions and the specific triggers that turned anti-Jewish feelings into collective violence, and analyze the nature of this violence.

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact judaicstudies@umich.edu or 734-763-9047.
