Chapter Summary

The very reality of anti-Semitism in schools, when it is not absent or denied, is constantly interpreted. The anti-Semitism competes with other forms of racism, one point constitutes a locus of fixation: the Shoah. Anti-Semitism in schools does not only take the form of insults and attacks. It is also linked with a malaise concerning the content of the curriculum and, in particular, in the case of history when it is a question, precisely, of talking about Jews and anti-Semitism. The Shoah was for a long time almost absent from the curriculum and only recently found its way in. It is clear that a new period has begun in which there is a need for reflection and experimentation to decide on a policy to address the following question: how can the presentation of this historical fact be de-dramatized without banalising it in the process?

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Jews; malaise; schools; Shoah
