In this 45 minutes lecture, Professor Andrew Rubin demonstrates the shared origins of modern European anti-Semitism and the histories of modern Islamophobia and Orientalism in early 19th century Europe. While this perspective does not deny the Holocaust its singularity as a historical catastrophe, it does suggest that as a singular event it produced a plurality of victims, another category of refugees, the Palestinians, the victims of the victims.
By apprehending the Shoa and al-Nakba together, Rubin argues that by interpreting the work of Said and Arendt together, we may better understand how Jews and Arabs belong to the same stream of European History.
